There is fresh snow up there from a storm on the night 06/08. The hike to St. Mary's Glacier was clear of snow but the once you get to the glacier the snow continues all the way to the Summit. We went early in the morning so the snow was fairly hard on the way up and the micro-spikes we packed were useful on the way up the glacier; however, on the way down the snow began to soften and we were post-holing our way through the whole glacier. It would probably be perfect for back country skiers right about now.
