Hiked Humboldt on Sunday 5/26/2013 via the East Ridge Route. Snowshoes weren't needed along the route, though right before breaking out of treeline there were several large drifts, but they were able to be navigated without any issues. The upper ridge did have some snow along the route, but it was crunchy and also didn't cause a problem. I descended the SE Flank route. The snow was sparse in the upper portion of the gully. About 500 feet below the summit I was able to start my glissade all the way down to the terminus. The road all the way to the upper TH is clear and free of snow.
