Como road was dry nearly to the lake - just short of the cabin we encountered snow. Early in the day, we didn't post hole, but late in the day snowshoes were definitely needed. Above the lake we were happy to have snowshoes. Ditched them at the base of the ridge of the saddle. Cornices on the ridge are easily avoided. Trip report with photos of conditions to come soon.
