Trail into the upper basin is totally snow free. Patchy snow until you reach the back of the basin. Then it's full snow coverage on the west side, but if you're headed for the saddle most of the snow can be avoided.
The refrigerator couloir is still fully in, very fis climbing conditions, and the cornice is gone. The choke point would be hard to ski (either side step or straight line), but the rest is still nicely skiable to the tarn.

It was nice to meet you on the refrigerator couloir on Saturday. You sure made fast work of Ice and North Apostle.
