I climbed Torrey's and Gray's from Grizzly today and the climb to Grizzly was a breeze for most of it. Almost summer conditions everywhere and any snow I encountered was avoidable or solid enough to walk on with maybe only 1 or 2 post holes this whole route. Got into the lot at 5:30 am and there were 5 other cars before me, weather was great. Didn't need traction at all for the whole journey, took about 2 hours to summit Grizzly and got back to Grizzly at about 10:45am and back to my car at 12:05. I took the shortcut from Cupid back to Loveland pass to avoid regaining a bit of altitude and that trail was the most snow I had to cross the whole time, I'd recommend traction if you try to take this shortcut early while the snow is still solid. I was able to kick steps on the way back so it wasn't sketchy but if it was a hard freeze it might be a little more sketch. If you stick to the standard route you will be fine tho! Have fun

Is it skiable off the summit of Cupid and Grizzly?

Not to much snow off the summits themselves. Might be able to ski down from the ridge toward the east side of the basin. Saw someone skiing off Gray's but probably only 500' of vertical descent before the snow runs out up there as well.
