The trail is virtually snow free to approx. 12,500. Conditions are very close to the photos shown in the standard route description. I highly recommend gaining the ridge as shown in that route description - gaining it further north was difficult. No snow on the west side from the ridge to the summit. We were able to stay on top of the snow on the way up and had a great glissade down.
