Consistent snow within the first half mile of TH, but trail is packed down all the way to tree line. Looked like a couple people had post-holed through the snow into the stream at the shortcut. Plenty of snow in the boulder field and the North Face. Upper Loft route looked loaded, but talked to two guys who went up the Loft part-way said the snow conditions were good. MLW has considerable snow on east face, but bare on the west. Storm Peak still holding lots of snow. Overall, lots of snow still up there but it is melting fast.
