Anyone know if there is still snow down to Manker Flats? If so, think it will last 'till Saturday? I was thinking of going up the Bowl, and want to ski all the way back down to the trailhead. Nightime lows are in the 40's...we need cooler nights or it'll be mush. I'm going up to ACH and skiing on Thursday....can't wait. :D

In Baldy Bowl? ALWAYS avy danger; mainly point release on climber's left from rock croppings.

Naturally, but the above posts less than a few days ago suggested heightened risk, hence my query :)

Though the bowl is melting out, the snow conditions were still excellent yesterday (April 3) in the early to mid-morning.

I went up the bowl on Saturday and there was snow past the hut but it was melting fast and causing some pretty good rock fall. I would say about 25% less snow than what is in the pic that Sam Page posted.

That looks really fun. Sounds like they had pretty good conditions most of the way up.
