Attempted to get to the peak on 6/14/17 only to be met with LOTS of snow. Got around 1 mile from the summit but the trail was hard to follow and some 10 to 15 ft snow drifts were difficult to make it around. Before we even reached the ridge line, we were finding ourselves in snow and had to guess where the trail was. Ended up going down the wrong trail for 3/4 of a mile due to The deep snow and not being able to see the trail. My advice is hug the ridge line and you will be fine. The first 1.5 miles of the trail is very steep but eventually evens out on the ridge line. That being said the views are incredible and made even better with the remaining snow. Will definitely return again but will wait a couple months.
