Trail is 95% dry, there are 3-4 snowfields I had to cross, each 100-200ft across, and was firm enough at 12pm to cross without traction/flotation. You can go around some of these too. The crux/scramble section up top was mostly dry except for a few patches that could be avoided, and only took a few minutes to climb. I turned right at 13800 and took the slightly steeper line because it was dry. Overall a very nice trail that is easily navigable. ΓΆ‚¬ΒΆ The last 2 photos are looking at Wetterhorn/Matterhorn, as of 6/11 when these were taken there was still a good bit of snow remaining.

ΓΆ‚¬ΒΆ I managed to get my standard Silverado up to the upper TH, although that wheel base length without a raise pushes the limits on this road and I bumped the baseplate a couple times. The creek crossings were around a foot deep.
