Went up to the ravine and hillmans on saturday. 4" of new snow at pinkham. 7.5" at hojos. around 8" at tucks and hillmans. 10" at the summit. increasing avalanche danger in tucks so we decided to go to hillmans first. around 10 people going up hillmans. no one was coming down so we decided to go back to hojos. the previously untrodden trail to tucks was now beaten down. we headed up to tucks. around 100 people in the ravine. saw 2 little avalanches caused by fallen skiers. most skiers were in left gully and the chute. 3 or 4 near right gully. conditions were pretty good, not many rocks except up on the headwall. open brook on little headwall. some undermined snow in right gully near the top. a great trip.
