There is a large chunk of ice sitting in the Lip, ready to let go at any moment.

Jeff and I walked into the bowl today, Friday, May 13. The skiing conditions were nice corn snow, a bit too soft for boot skiing. Left Gully is still skiable from the top to the floor of the ravine. Sarah, the caretaker of Hermit Lake said the Chute from the top of the hourglass was really nice. There were a few tracks in other places in the Bowl, but things are disappearing fast. At the moment, the clouds are dropping and it’s starting to rain. Look for a new bulletin tomorrow.

Ps: here are a couple more photos taken from Boott Spur Link.
