11,500 to tree line the melting snow was slick. Maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 mile in length requires traction.

We are planning on heading up that way tomorrow.

How much snow above treeline?

Can we make it to the trailhead in an AWD Audi A4?

The trailhead to southwest slopes is paved. The trail is mostly dry to about 11K and from there to tree line there was packed snow on the trail which was icy/slushy on the descent. Above tree line there were patches of snow but, avoidable.
