Passenger cars can still access the TH as of 12/4/10. The trail was in good condition and easy to follow up to about 11,500, then we encountered some postholing as we approached treeline. Once the trail turned and headed up the southeast face toward the saddle, there were scattered areas of snow, but was mostly dry. There were a couple of short snow crossings as we approached the Angel; a fall would result in injury for the last crossing. We headed up the southeast face rather than gain the saddle because of the wind. The summit had a bit of snow on it, but it was nothing to be worried about.
