Looking at the ARVTP I think the bowl will soften up today. Even if it stays just below freezing the solar gain is significant this time of year. Just watch out for the shadows. When those start creeping into the ravine in the afternoon the snowpack will re-freeze very quickly.

11am and I don't see any people in the bowl (on the webcam zoom). I'm sure there are people, but I don't see the big line up going up the major ski routes.
