Good conditions in King Ravine today. Some water ice bulges in Great Gully, but could be avoided by crossing over to the next chute on skier's left about 3/4 of the way down. The ski out was long with difficult conditions but we managed to make it all the way to the parking lot without removing skis. The bottom section on Air Line will probably melt out soon with the warm weather.

There were about 6 other skiers in King Ravine (plus our group of 3) on Saturday, plus a bunch of hikers on the ridges. Appalachia parking lot was nearly full. Much better than the zoo in Tuckerman, but not exactly desolate either.
