Road from winter closure to Brainard Lake is thin packed snow. Trenched from there to summer trailhead by later in the day. We had to break trail through some tough snowdrifts in the trees, there was one old set of tracks. Trench is basically in now to treeline but doesn't always follow the trail. Snow thins out around treeline, a thin layer of fresh, didn't use snowshoes or traction beyond, but trail is hard to spot. We turned around at 12000 due to foot injury, but perfect weather with no wind most of the time. East slopes and upper trail filled with blocky giant cottage cheese sastrugi.
