Trip Report

I did something on Saturday, May 16th that I've never done before. I bagged a peak on skis on the May long weekend! Wietse and I had already made two half-hearted attempts at Snow Peak near Burstall Pass in Kananaskis Country over the winter of 2009. Finally on May 16th we decided that we'd had enough of this 'easy' peak and ended up summiting in perfect conditions in around 7 hours, round trip.
