Few inches of snow in spots on the upper trail, went up with 5 others today. Low hikers for boots, no traction devices, occasional minor and not very deep postholing, more or less avoidable with some effort. Warm day so some areas were melting, when it sets up it might be nice to have yaktrax or similar in the pack. Almost no snow in the trees and on the lower areas. 4WD road to upper th is good, not much water in the stream crossing, we had a 4Runner and a Tacoma so no issues at all.
