We drove just past a couple snow fields that had mostly melted, yet about 3/4 from Kite Lake you are completely blocked. It then gets dry for a few hundred feet, but you face very deep snow banks again. So- expect about 1.5 extra to your hike (round trip).
Yes, the lake is still frozen, though it is thawing.
