4WD road to TH was relatively snow-free and easily accessible with Jeep Liberty Renegade. Trail was frozen solid until trail junction (approx. 1.25 miles from TH). Trail was in great condition the entire way up. Snow was somewhat drifted on the trail approaching the summit ridge and on the summit ridge, but was generally hard enough to avoid postholing. By about 1pm, lower trail thawed.

Note: East slopes looked like they had a bit more accumulation, perhaps down to about 12,500 ft.
