Climbed Mt. Arkansas via North Couloir on Sunday, 4/22. Mixed dry and shallow snow on road from CO91 for 1st quarter mile; snow for next 3/4 mile to crest of upper basin (first view of route), snow fields and dry for 1/4 mile then snow to base of climb.
Climb has more than fair share of recent snow, got soft very early but for very top, I'd wait for a good freeze before attempting this route. No route finding issues from car to summit.
