From the Argentine TH on the west (Summit County) side, there are a few minor snowfields on the trail (the old road) below treeline. Above treeline are two major snowfields, one of which is steep and at least 100 long. Microspikes highly recommended; otherwise safest way across is to ascend ~50 vertical feet, cross where the slope is gentler and return to trail. Summer conditions above Argentine Pass no matter where you go; all snow is easily avoided.
