Healthy coat of snow from ~11,000' up. Trail is easy to follow from the trailhead to treeline. From there, I'm sorry to say, our tracks wandered a bit. Made it to ~13,000' before heading back down. Snow is loosely packed, generally mid-calf or less, with plenty of talus sticking out. Not sure how much good crampons or snowshoes would be until it's denser.

Aspens were glorious!

Thanks for the tracks

We followed your tracks on Sunday (thank you for making it easier for us) and then continued to the summit. Was that you that left the TH shortly after 9 PM?
