Trail is devoid of snow until the slopes under the Vermillion-Fuller saddle. It is possible to cobble together an ascent to this saddle without hitting snow if you go to the far right (Vermillion side) of the saddle, though it would take creative route-finding. Otherwise, bring an axe and crampons and just go up the snow.

The stream crossing from the high clearance parking before the trail joins the Ice Lakes Basin Trail is trivial.
