The current snow trail goes too far left (west) shortly after entering the trees and wonders through deep snow and steep terrain. The trail ends at the top of the ridge on the right hand side of avalanche gulch, with another half mile or more of deep snow trail breaking required to reconnect with the trail on the lower ridge. I watched for where the trail might have split on the way back so I could mark it for the next people, but never found it. The summer trail should still have decent snow pack under the top layer of powder if you can find it.
