East Ridge route from S Elbert TH mostly clear of snow until about 13,500'. Above 13,500' generally continuous snow, anywhere from a dusting to 6" deep. Hiking poles were helpful, but didn't use microspikes or other traction tools. Trail was obvious to follow despite the snow. Pictures show trail below treeline, above treeline, and ~13,750'ish.
