|Peak:||Mt. Massive (14er)|

A fair amount of snow/ice lingering on/around the trail once above the willows and before the saddle. Not too much snow/ice on the ridge to the main summit, but a fair amount if one was to traverse and continue along towards Massive Green/North Massive. By the time I was coming down around 9am it was turning into mostly slush like conditions but still icy in parts. There were points where I wish I had had my microspikes with me and they may be needed soon for the upper parts depending on weather patterns. Still doable right now in regular boots, poles for balance and used as a gauge for snow density/depth would be quite useful as well.
