It is probably not worth bringing snowshoes for the few short sections of the route that they would help. There is some snow drifted over the rocky switchbacks just below Willow Lake and in the trees near and just above the lake. Past the lake above the steep grassy slope there is snow in the willows, in the flat areas of grass it was very wet. From the saddle toward Adams' summit the rock was dry, most of the patches of snow could be avoided easily.
