The Kirtle Burn hut is a 7 bunk hut nestled below Mt Pisa. Drive up to the Snowfarm (off the Cardrona Valley Rd). You need a backcountry pass to access the DOC track which starts amongst the Proving Ground buildings. Call in to the Snow Farm office to register.
Our full moon trip followed the ridge on the true left of the Kirtle Burn before dropping down to the hut. The following day we enjoyed some good skiing in the Cliff Burn before returning back to the Snow Farm via the valley.
See the map for our route. There is a lot of options for skiing. The runs in the Cliff Burn catchment are longer and steeper than expected and it is a spectacular cliff lined valley.
