Trail is dry for first 3-4 miles for the most part, then off and on snow until just before Willow Lake. From willow lake until the final ridge I wore snowshoes.

I attempted Kit Carson, but the snow on the avenue made it tough to get to the nice climbing line so I bailed.

On descent I wore spikes across Challenger slope, then had to put snowshoes on and off a few times around the lake. Even with snowshoes I had a fair bit of postholing, the snow really got soft (and deep).
