I was on Red Peak on September 13 and got a good look at Holy Cross, Elbert & Massive from the summit. Reports for Elbert & Holy Cross are current since the snow, but there hasn't been one yet for Massive, so hopefully this helps. The entire upper mountain looked to be covered in snow. Hard to tell how deep- judge from reports of peaks in the area.

Photos 1, 2, 4: Elbert & Massive are on the far right side of the horizon. Photo 3: Massive & Elbert are on the left. This is the best photo I got of Massive.

Really thoughtful of you to post about peaks that you viewed but didn't climb. This is helpful. I guess you saw the north faces, and the south faces may be less snowy.


South side

Right, I could only see the north/northeast side of Massive & Elbert. I can tell you that the south side of Red Peak and Eccles Pass were 99% melted out, so my guess is that anything south-facing will have some melting going on.
