Not much snow. Bare to 2 to 4 inches along the La Garita stock driveway. Was surprised to come across a Wrangler (stock, I think) and an ATV in Phoenix park. One maybe 100 yd section of knee-deep postholing at a flat-ish spot along the W ridge at about 12,500. Wore gaiters. Needed no other winter gear. I was quite warm until the bit of icy wind near the summit ridge.
