My partner and I started putting in a trench on Audubon this morning. A few other people came along (at least 6 in total), and there is now a good trench to treeline, but snowshoes are still needed imo. It should be good until the next storm. In the area around treeline it's a bit messy (dry spots and a few deep drifts). Above treeline it's pretty dry and snowshoes are not needed. The last pitch to the summit is covered by a coating of snow and rime ice but wasn't steep enough for us to bother with traction. From winter closure this is a 14 mile day.
