Snowshoes not needed. We took MicroSpikes but didnít use them. Pole recommended. It will depend on the melt freeze cycle if things are icy. Above the willows is largely blown off. Still some snow in places. In the willows there was a little post holing in the afternoon. The biggest issue could be the stream crossing. The water under the snow is broader than the stream. In the morning it was firm enough about 50í downstream from the usual crossing spot. On the return we crawled across since a post hole meant a soaker. This area could get worse with some more mild weather. Georgetown side - road bare to winter parking closure. Some snow on road to summer TH. A little post holing on return.
