Oxford and Belford are already reported on so I'll do Missouri...
From the Missouri Gulch trailhead I climbed it without a problem in my trail runners (but I've been known to overdo those), however microspikes might have come in handy. The trail has collected some snow but as long as its late enough in the day that its not ice you'll be fine. On the upper sections the trail can become problematic but getting up there is straightforward. Actually got a very odd glissade in for about 1200 feet. About 8-10 inces of snow on smooth underling scree was just enough to sort of slab avalanche my way down
