In spots the snow was easily 2 ft in the North Facing cirques you have to cross; although the ridge to the summit was mostly snow free. Unless you like postholing through unconsolidated snow, I would suggest the Colorado Trail approach to the South Ridge or the Stewart Creek TH (which both looked mostly snow free, and have a better aspect). The picture shown, is looking back across towards the 2nd saddle.
