Snow free to stream crossing. Patches of snow up to the cabin, gaiters recommended. Then a couple of longer sections of snow all the way to the base of Belford. Firm in the morning, made a few postholes on the way out. Snowshoes would likely be overkill, we did not bring any and did not miss them. Belford ascent has a few very short patches of snow but is mostly dry. Oxford has short section of snow when leaving Belford but otherwise dry. Everything is melting fast, by next weekend there may not be much snow left on the trailhead-Belford-Oxford trail. Missouri and Elkhorn pass are still under plenty of snow.

How much snow in the NW Gully? Can you ski off the summit?
