Road to Brainard Winter lot had some ice on it but was melting fast. Road (Closed) between Brainard Winter lot and Long Lake Trailhead was 50/50 hardpacked snow and clean pavement (you can easily ride a bike from Brainard Winter lot to Long Lake Trhd). Good snow coverage from Long Lake Trailhead to Lake Isabelle. Skinned all the way to base of Apache Couloir but this does require navigation and skinning over small brush. Apache Couloir was hard packed (not ice) making it great for climbing (not the best skiing, I tried). Dry near top of couloir to summit.
