    I just hiked it today. Just a few very small patches of snow with no effect on the trail. Crossed Devil's Backbone and down Ski Hut. Ski Hut seemed to have a lot more loose rocks on it then previously. DB also had some really narrow sections on the steep part that I don't remember previously. Most people were hiking in shorts except the last 500′ from summit when wind picked up and felt around high 40's. Saw a bighorn sheep which was cool. Layer clothing and check weather before you go since it can change quite a bit from day to day. I know this weekend is suppose to be 20 degrees colder then today unless I read it wrong. But you shouldn't have any problems at all. If you are going on Sunday, April 28th, I would highly recommend getting there about 6-6:30am. Parking fills up really fast on weekend.
