Dry up to the creek crossing, then 1-2 inches of packed snow/ice to the cabin ruins. 2-4 inches of until the turnoff at Elkhead Pass that was melting quickly by the time I left. The ridge had a few spots with knee deep snow, especially at the crux drop down. Gaiters are recommended, spikes are helpful (until the snow softens up later in the day).
