Default Panorama Ridge snow condition question

I am planning to do Panorama Ridge this Sunday, how's the current snow condition there? do I need to bring the snowshoes?

Thank you very much for any info you might give.

I heard from a friend who was in Garibaldi last week that the lake was still frozen. I am planning to go on June 23rd.
If you end up going let me know what conditions you got.
Good Luck!

I did Helm Ridge from Cheakamus today. Continuous snow from 1400m. Quite firm, I did not use snowshoes (although they might make it a bit easier, and would have kept my boots dry).

Thanks, used microspikes at 6.5 km and changed to snowshoes at the meadow. used crampons on last part of ridge to the summit.....heavier load and complicated but easier
