SW Ridge route- The final pitch to the summit is free of snow. There is snow in the small gullies. Doable but you must be careful.

The standard route has some snow too, especially the gully above Lavander Col. It is still easier than SW ridge route.

Also, the trails on both sides of Blue Lakes Pass have snow. Winter boots should be fine.
