A couple of feet at the TH and for the first 1/8mi or so, but beyond that it‘s mostly melted out. The TH itself is N facing and is on steep treed slope, therefore is in the shadows a lot.
Beyond Purg. Flats, and in the canyon, I crossed over 4 avy debris piles, other than those, the trail to Cascade/Animas is dry.
Tracks from Cascade to Needleton is dry. Across the bridge and at the TH for Needleton Creek is dry, but I didn‘t go beyond the sign. I went to the north.
S and W aspects up to at least 9200‘ is mostly melted out, from my observations and what I encountered.
