I approached from the Waldorf Mine and then hiked up the Argentine Pass road and carried on up the ridge to the summit. The road to the mine was almost entirely clear, with a few snow banks that will probably be gone soon. As it was many ATVs made it up there and a few cars bolder than I made it as well (including some gentleman demonstrating some very unsafe shooting practices that shot in my direction).

After the mine the road was mostly snow covered, but it was melting very quickly. I would guess that all of the road but the very last .10 mi will be walkable without stepping on snow by next weekend.

The ridge was intermittent snow melting quickly in most places, and the summit was pretty deep snow that will be there for a while yet.
