Default The Lions clear??

Has anyone hiked the Lions this year? I want to do it Saturday and was hoping our string of warm weather has made it fairly clear.
Looking for so info
Thanks

Can't speak specifically about the Lions, but as for close by areas:

-Lions Bay SAR had a rescue the other day for people attempting the HSCT and becoming overwhelmed by the snow, and this was around Unnecessary.
-The Emergency Shelter at Magnesia Meadows was completely buried in snow as of ~1.5 weeks ago. No doubt there has been melt, but that's still a lot of snow.

There is also this very recent report which probably answers everything:

Haha, was gonna say I have a decent view of it during my commute. The approach still looks pretty snowy from Vancouver.

what do you guys know about Harvey conditions? Hard packed snow before the ridge, some cornice along the ridge, final steep bit to the summit dry?
