I approached from the north from the Wahatoya Trail. Below treeline, north through east facing aspects are holding a significant amount of snow and my snowshoes were punching through over knee deep. Above treeline, the terrain is mostly dry, or at least its easy to find bare ground. From the ridgeline to the summit from the east has snow drifts that are mostly only a couple feet deep and I was either able to walk to the side of them or on top for areas where the snow was firm. See my trip report for details on the route.
