Anyone know how the trail conditions are to the ranger station and into the bowl. Avalanch possibilities? Tomorrow suppose to be a fantastic day, so thought we'd hike halfway up the mountain. Any thoughts? :eek:

The trails up to the ravine should be hard packed, as I don't think they got much new snow. Expect dirty crust up to the ravine. With all the new snow and the rapidly warming temps, I wouldnt sit anywhere near an avalanche runout tomorrow that hasn't already slid...

Also watch out for ice fall. Some big pieces could come down tomorrow if it gets into the 80s in the valley.

Check out the weekend update on tuckerman.org

The comments today talk about 13 inches of new snow at the summit - that has probably all blown over into the ravines. I would be very concerned about avalanches this weekend.

I know, those buds are really close to popping. Amazing with all that snow around.
