Baldy Bowl is essentially snow free in east face. North slopes in the area are holding considerable snow down to 6500'. South around 9100'.
Snow is hard packed and icy in the mornings, firm but slushier around 12pm on south facing slopes and ridgelines. North aspects retain hard packed firm snow longer.
Microspikes at minimum with poles, crampons and axe recommend.
