Continuous snow from trailhead. While Guanella Pass is clear, 391 still has several feet of snow. I wore snowshoes the entire time: they were overkill in the morning (but I didn't want to carry them) and necessary after the sun rose. There was one steep section after the lake I was glad I had my ice axe for security purposes, but I never used it. Started at 4am, back down by 9am (with a summit of Otter Mountain thrown in there as well). The trail was total slush by 9am and I was glad I had snowshoes.
