Summited Casco from Echo Canyon TH. Trail up to treeline was mostly snow covered with some icy spots, but easy to follow. We ascended the valley by traversing high and avoiding the willows and only had to cross intermittent patches of snow. Grassy slopes up to the ridge also had intermittent snow. Ridge was about 50/50 snow and rock. The summer route was covered with snow in most areas. We descended the valley lower through the willows which weren't too bad, but spots had up to a foot of snow. Microspikes and ice axe were helpful on the ridge. We didn't use snowshoes.
