I summited Mt.Princeton today(10/20), I was owning the mountain completely by myself ;). I was the only person in the mountain. Trail and peak is covered with 5-6 inches of snow. 2-3 inches of snow in Ridge. While heading down, it started snowing and almost 2 inches of new snow accumulation in the trail.
Microspikes is a must. I was carrying my gaiters too, but I didn't use it. Also please make sure you always stay in the ridge, because I see multiple treads to the peak (Old trail and other connecting treads). The last portion was little tough, because of wind (almost 20-30+ mph)
I have attached some of the pics both from trails and peak. Please let me know, if you need to more about the peak/trail conditions.

If you wish to camp, there are 2-3 camping spots in 322A road (near upper TH). I also advise to drive to radio tower station in daytime, because the 322 road is very narrow.
