The route up Quandary is still hikeable without snowshoes. They do help though around treeline if you aren't able to follow previous hikers. The blowing snow covers footprints pretty quickly, but as long as you follow the ridge up you'll be okay. (the route is more apparent above 13,000') The trail below treeline is hardpacked and very easy to follow.
The wind was quite strong today so be careful if the the NWS says "windy". I would definately recommend microspikes.
