Snow on 12th (picture 1). 97% melted by 14th (picture 2). As of the 17th, almost no snow at all is visible from the valley (just a bit on the north face of Challenger). There does not appear to be any new snow on the 17th.

From what I could see on the 'stones, there was some snow on Challenger, but mainly on the slanted face below the summit ridge; the ridge itself looked to have fairly little snow. On KC, the descending portion of the Avenue and subsequent climb looked to be snow-free on Sunday.
