Mt. Princeton road is snow free all the way up to 4wd TH. Observed a Toyota truck getting stuck at about 11,500'. Snow and ice are present on the majority of the East Slopes route before the ridge. Snow was usually 2-3" deep on the dirt trail. I did not have microspikes on and did slip a few times. Wind gusts up to 40mph on the ridge, but these were few and far between. A beautiful day given the season.
