Default Crown Mtn?

From Vancouver, it looks like Crown Mtn is free of snow and is ripe for a hike. Does anyone know what the current snow conditions are on Grouse for a hike?

We went up last Friday morning - Left at 4:30am from the Grouse Plateau and had a beautiful sunrise before dropping down to Crown Pass. It was nice because we were above the clouds for the most part and then re-entered them into Crown Pass and then climbed back out of the clouds and on to the summit.

A few patches of snow, but it was soft enough that no crampons were needed. Bare for the majority of the route. The most snow is still in the shadows of Little Goat as you drop into Crown Pass. Probably more melt this past week too.

Happy hiking!
