Logjam very passable. Few patches of snow on hike up to lake but camping area is very much clear. Snow along lake to base but very soft after sunrise. Soft snow up to top ridge, with many paths available to follow. Ridge to summit mostly dry with 2 snowy patches and a few area with loose rocks. Glissading awesome from top ridge to base. Snowshoes not needed. Same for crampons unless the tread on your boots is very worn. Ice axe or support pole of some sort comes in handy on final ridge push. Many great lines for skiing/boarding down to base still available.
