Default Scrambling Icefield regions in June

Is it too early for scrambles in the Columbia icefield/Wapta icefield regions in mid June? I'm thinking easy peaks near either mosquito creek or Wilcox campgrounds.

it is early, but might not be totally out of question. Here is image @ Columbia Icefields last week:

Boundary Peak (just to left, out of picture) was good to go; had some snow higher up but it wouldn't be huge problem. Also Sunwapta from the road looked ok, as well as Tangle Ridge. Couldn't see Wilcox backside, likely still snowy. And of course this storm that just passed probably changed conditions quite a bit.

Not sure there are many easy peaks in that area, almost everything is up around 3000 meters. Very likely to still be snowed in up that high. However, If you find anything, please post a TR!

Not the fastest, but I get to where I am going and enjoy it.
