This was a while ago.
I would still expect a wack of snow past the lake. Expect the trail to be very soggy on the last section to the lake.

Went up there for a skiing day trip last Sunday (June 14th). The Marriot Trail is free of snow, Rohr Lake Trail is free of snow until just before the meadows at 1660m. Some mud, patchy and isothermal snow (read: postholing) until 1850m. We skied from 1850m, or just north of Rohr Lake. Beyond here the valley bottom and north facing slopes are still snow covered.

You could perhaps do without skis/snowshoes if the snow freezes overnight and you're willing to take the chance of postholing... Problem is the lower stuff (<1950m) was pretty much isothermal (slushy, wet snow), so this wouldn't be that much fun to wallow through if it doesn't freeze.

hmm, 2 of us in the group don't have snowshoes, and we're just wanting to make it to the lake which maxes out around 1800, so i'm crossing my fingers and hoping it will work out. All the details will be in my trip report.

We walked to the lake in sneakers, and got wet feet and had some postholing in soft snow, but nothing too bad. Should be fine with hiking shoes. Bring gaiters if you have them. And the bugs are out as well on the logging road, so bring some bug spray

View north from small peak south of Rohr Lake:


Have fun!
