Default Golden ears conditions

Hi folks.

Any idea what conditions are like at golden ears at the moment? Specifically panorama ridge or the peak?
Are snow shoes reccomended?
I've never done this hike before. Is it crampon and ice axe territory?

Any idea how panorama ridge campground is at the moment?

Thanks.

Yes.
You won't make the summit safely without them at the moment.

Zero snow on Alouette or Evans at the moment... Alouette is the same elevation as the Emergency Hut on the panorama ridge where you would be camping I assume. There is glacial melt waterfall about 60m west of the hut.. you can't miss it... fantastically refreshing.
