Default North Van Peak Trails - conditions

Are any of the North Van Peak trails open for basic hiking at the moment or do you still need snowshoes or micro-spikes?

I know that Fromme looked pretty clear a while back, but there seems to have been a decent dump of snowfall up north over the past few weeks so thought I would double check on conditions. Was wanting info on any of the peak trails, such as the Grind, Lynn Peak etc. etc.

Haven't been out for a few weeks now, but was wanting to tackle something with a bit of elevation gain.

Thanks for any feedback.

Any of the popular trails like Grind, BCMC and Lynn Peak don't require snow shoes right now but it would be a good idea to have spikes handy. Snow line is about 950m. If someone has been up Fromme in the last week or so, my guess is you might get by without snowshoes by using their tracks, but personally if I was going up Fromme tomorrow I would bring snowshoes.

Snowline on Fromme today started at about 750m on Per Gynt. Recommended gear micro spikes and small snow shoes.
