Went up South then North Arapaho today and finished on Old Baldy. Previous report noted that you could do the whole traverse without touching snow and I can confirm that. We brought axes and spikes and never took them out. If you stay on route after the top of S. Arapaho, you could almost call it summer conditions. Below South Arapaho, there are a number of snowfields and the trail is basically a stream by midday. You're in for a long day without waterproof boots. We did not do Skywalker, but I talked to a group that did. Although it's melted out a bit at the top, they had solid snow conditions for the majority of the couloir. Seems like it's still in, though at the rate things are melting - who knows how long that will last.
