As of yesterday, there is little snow on the Northeast ridge of Elbert. Encountered snow drifts as we neared tree line, however did not posthole whatsoever and snowshoes were not required. Other snow fields encountered between timberline and the summit did not melt much throughout the day, again with minimal postholing. At this point snowshoes are not required. However, snow is good for glissading!
