There was no snow up to the lake. About a mile after the lake and halfway up the north ridge to Challenger, there was some good sized snow fields. With some careful route finding the snow may be avoided. However, the snow is melting fast and creates a very wet scene if coming back down after 12 or so. The snow was soft at 10am. I estimate snow to be on this side of the ridge for a few more weeks. On the ridge it was clear but a bit windy. The top of the peak was clear of snow and the weather was crystal clear.
