Info: Route is pretty dry the whole way with only small patches of snow here and there. I didn't even need to put on my microspikes the entire way.

Info: Route was close to 1/2 firm snow and 1/2 dry trail/rocks; not icy at all. We ended up ascending all the way from Loveland Pass, over Cupid, and to Grizzly without traction or flotation, but did put micros on for the descent and traverse to Sniktau - just left them on for a few scrambling moves along the ridge and where the route was dirt/rock. Even snow-covered, it's easy to follow the trails other than the rocky section south of Cupid and the last couple hundred feet of Grizzly; stay close to the ridge lines (but off cornices) and you can't go wrong.

Info: From Loveland Pass, the trail is visible the entire hike except for the last 5 minutes or so. Snow is no higher than my knees in the deepest areas, and most is avoidable. Near summer conditions.

Info: Good, prime conditions for this route and reaching the top of the peak. Variable, definitely still a lot of snow around. There are many high-quality mountaineering lines that are in. Traversed over from Sniktau. Make a trip up and enjoy the great outdoors / summit. Pictures included for beta

Info: Trail to the top of pt 12xxx has very little snow, and where there is snow, its well packed. no need for spikes or snowshoes. The ridge over to Cupid is a little snowier, but we had no problem there either. For the skiers, Daves Wave is in, but pretty thin near the top in the gully, and there is a really nasty crust lower down... assuming from some rain last night.

Info: Typical winter conditions. Did not need or use snowshoes or microspikes. There were only a couple spots of hard, windpacked snow and we were all able to kick our boots in enough for traction. The cornices are thinking about getting big, with one in particular on the Grizzly side of "Cupid" that looked huge - stay away from them and the route is safe regardless of avalanche conditions. It was snowing on our way out, but it‘s been snowing a lot lately so I don‘t believe conditions will have changed much. I created GPS waypoints for the car, as well as the point on the Continental Divide that you first access from Loveland Pass. These were useful on our hike out when the storm moved in.
