 Skiing on Mount Bross   

Bross via west slopes, 5-12-05. Kite Lake road is open to Sweet Home Mine. A few snow drifts are passable with a 2WD sedan, however a 4WD would be nice. Started at 11,100 on road to get 3000 at 9:15 am. Ascended the gully directly east of Kite Lake on snow to 13,600, dropped the skis and continued to the summit arriving at 12:15pm. Slow going due to our 3 hours of sleep the night before Walked back to skis with bands of snow flurries. Ski decent from 13,600 to Sweet Home Mine was quick on rock hard spring snow pack. Here is a pic from the top of the ski:

Little to no winter snow pack avy danger in this gully. Arrived at car at 1:00 pm. Could ski from just off the summit on ridges to reach the gully if you wanted to. Fun day.
