Summer conditions nearly the entire way to the summit when approaching from the west. I summitted wearing trail running shoes and a base layer (it was about 35 degrees at the top). The east aspect was significantly snowier, but still could be avoided pretty well if desired. The summit ridge on Aetna was still fairly snowed in although the Grand Couloir is looking somewhat bare, at least from the top of Monarch Pass. The west faces of Shavano/Tabeguache are looking dry.

I actually hiked this peak yesterday but I imagine conditions are very similar today.
