Trail was free of snow almost all the way. There were just patches of snow here and there as you neared the last 500 feet in elevation. Patches of snow at the top. Weather was warm and snow was melting. If they have sunny weather all week and no more snow I'd be surprised if there was much of any snow at all by next weekend. Hiked in trail runner shoes; no poles, and no yak tracks and was fine. Lots of scree to hike through for a lot of the hike. No snow on the road yet to the TH and you can park at or below the gate at 12,000 feet in any vehicle.
