I was expecting deeper snow on this trip, but didn’t need to use snowshoes up to the plateau, elevation 2400m. By the look of it, on the sun exposed further slopes, the snow was minimal. Not sure of the summit ridge. A blue bird day, with no wind, about 6 kms to reach the plateau from the parking spot.
Beaten trail by a previous party, with dry sections all the way.
Having had started earlier, I would’ve attempted the summit push.
Perhaps will attempt this during summer time, when the closure allows to climb in this area. (there are some time restrictions due to wildlife corridors).

BTW, the “cave” I was filming turns out it’s an old Copper Mine entrance
