Reached the summit around 10am on Saturday. Roughly an inch or two of snow on the way up, two to ten or so on the way back (due to drifts). Was still snowing when I left, so Im not sure what the final amount was. Had micro spikes with me, but didnt end up using them. The final incline before the summit ridge had brutal, constant winds--I ended up crawling up roughly 150 yards from the final saddle as I was nearly knocked over several times (Im roughly 62", 205 lbs, so it was really going). Visibility was roughly 20 yards or so near the summit, about a 1/4 of a mile towards the TH.
