Another partial-report-by-request.

Since the snow on the ~10th there has been no additional weather. Rare tiny packets of snow remain on the ground around 8400; I doubt there are any trailhead access issues on the west side.

A reasonable amount of snow is still visible up higher, but much has melted. North-facing slopes and gullies probably hold a fair amount; Challenger N slopes and Kit Carson avenue would likely be among those. Snow on south-facing ridges and slopes should be avoidable. I would guess. No clue about the eastern approaches, though the wet valley side gets plenty of sun too.
