Only snow was along saddle with Sherman and approach to saddle, as well as east ridge of Sheridan. See Mt. Sherman condition report too. Could have crossed to east talus slope and made it down that way from summit, instead of following same route I took up, if I had realized I could avoid the snowfield hiking down from the east summit. As it was, it snow seemed to get deeper as I went east in it, a few hundred feet below the summit, so I followed standard route down. This can save you a good amount of hiking, although I don't know the conditions on the talus, but if it's the same as the northeast ridge you should be fine. to

See photos from Sheridan summit, and from trail to Sheridan summit. In contrast to summit of Sherman, there was very little wind, although it was gusting on the way up/down, but nowhere near as bad as on Sherman. Once you're above the Sherman-Sheridan saddle there is little snow to contend with, on the northeast ridge, unless you want to take the shortcut I described up or down.
