Typical winter conditions. Did not need or use snowshoes or microspikes. There were only a couple spots of hard, windpacked snow and we were all able to kick our boots in enough for traction. The cornices are thinking about getting big, with one in particular just on the Grizzly side of "Cupid" that looked huge - stay away from them and the route is safe regardless of avalanche conditions.

It was snowing on our way out, but it's been snowing a lot lately so I don't believe conditions will have changed much. I created GPS waypoints for the car, as well as the point on the Continental Divide that you first access from Loveland Pass. These were useful on our hike out when the storm moved in.
