For both Redcloud and Sunshine Peaks there was no snow below treeline. Above that there was only a couple of inches covering the trail but not causing any route finding/following issues. The basin on the otherhand had about calf deep snow in it, at times making the trail a little harder to find. Cairns marked the trail well. Still nothing a pair of light hikers and a pair of gaiters couldn't handle. Brought micro spikes but they weren't necessary.
