Still lots of snow on this trail. Plenty of people do these trails in winter, but you have to be at least a little Avi Savvy, have the avalanche gear, and know how to use it.

With the spring freeze/thaw cycle around this time of year, you can get anything from a mountain of bullet proof boiler plate ice, to avalanche prone afternoon slush. My personal recommendation would be to give it another two weeks to a month.

I did the trail today (June 14th) and no problem. Mind you, I only ventured in about 2 km. Hardly anyone there and perfect weather - not too hot and not too cold.
