Snowy - Snow from the trailhead up to the peak. trail past tree line was blown away so we needed to trudge a new one. I think it will last until the next snowfall (if there is one). Otherwise trail is packed down well, so easy to traverse. Micro-spikes were super helpful, would recommend to have handy for the next month. Sun was turning the snow into slush by midday so plan accordingly.
