This weekend, April 24-25, snow covered the north facing slopes (south side) of George Creek around 8000 ft. The snow was nearly continuous above 9000 ft. and fully continuous above 10,000 ft. The snow was melting quick, so there may be less when you get there.

Here is a picture, this was around 8000 ft.:

There was lots of post holing, but the snowshoes were not worth it.
