Really quite a lot of snow above 12k' (from the weekend storm) - All boot-packed and easy but still a snow hike. I was very glad to have poles, gaitors, and micro spikes. The mud was frozen in the morning but a brutal mess by 11am. I'm sure most of the snow will be gone soon. Pics in the youtube clip below if you are interested (included sawtooth).
