Has anyone been up Columbia recently? Due to the lack of snow, I'm contemplating an attempt this weekend, December 8th or 9th, 2012. Thanks!
I drove by yesterday around sunset and it appears the only snow is on the normal couloirs on the eastern side near french gulch. It is extremely thin, just a small thread of snow here and there. Birthday Peak behind Columbia and Harvard looked to have a bit more cover, and I expect the closer you get to the divide the deeper it will be. I think you could probably drive to the th and hike most of the way, if not all of the way, in regular shoes.
A shot of Columbia from West Buffalo Peak this past Sunday, 12/2:
