Any words of wisdom on what to expect? Specifically interested in Northgate trailhead access issues, likely glacier conditions and the degree to which early season snow would affect the upper 3rd class rock sections on the ridge. Thanks in advance!

The previous weekend a ranger told me they did not check if Military Pass was through. I would expect it is now, but the roads to trailheads might still be covered with snow. I would like to know that as well. Update please.
