Parked about 1/2 mile from the actual TH due to snow on the access road. Another week and it might be all gone. I was lucky enough to be third person on the trail so didn't have to break trail trough the snow. Snowy all the way up to the saddle between Sherman and Sheridan. Very windy. Temp below freezing but nice and sunny. The upper part (13,000 to peak) is mostly snow free. A fair amount of snow on top - enough for me to dig out a small hole to sit in out of the wind. I wore micro-spikes all the way (too lazy to remove them on upper section). Most others I saw were just in boots. A couple of spots to glissade down (always a plus).
