Has anyone been up to McNamara Hut recently via the Hunter Creek TH? We're heading up this weekend and I wondering when the trail is actually snow covered.

Thanks for any info!

Hiked in to McNamara on 22Dec. Not a lot of snow but some folks were still skinning in. There was a pretty hard packed trench that barely covered the dirt in spots. We used snowshoes mainly for the traction. Microspikes probably would've worked. There was more snow the closer we got to the hut. Don't think there has been much, if any snow, since.
