I did the Halo Ridge to the summit, over halfmoon and back to the TH last Sunday. Snow free the whole way. Road was perfect too.

I, my buddy (Rohit), and another member Valarie will be hiking this on Saturday morning. If you still need some Beta on this hike after this weekend, let me know and I can give you the information the best that I can!

You can usually get a low-res distant view of it from Vail's cams:

Looks snow free. I was in the town yesterday and the Gore is dry at 13k, so any snow you would find on Holy Cross I would expect to be high. The road should not be an issue, its low enough to have not received any snow yet this season.

Thanks everybody, for the inputs.
I got up and down Saturday and Sunday.

The route was completely clear through Sunday, Sept 23.
