Perfect hiking weather. Started around 9:20 and made the summit a little before 1:00. Relatively warm day, so the snow was definitely softening up as the morning wore on. I used yaktrax, but everyone else in the group used only boots and didn't have any difficulty with traction. Past treeline, once you get onto the actual ridge, it's mostly covered in snow. However, a fair amount of the trail is snow free, so if you get sick of hiking in the snow, you'll have some breaks. We also saw a mountain goat on the way up.
