The road to Ravine Lodge was still closed as of Sunday, so be advised that you need to factor the road walk into your calculations.

The Gorge Brook trail is currently closed. I went up and back via the Snapper Trail and the Carriage Rd. Snapper has a light dusting of snow, but no big deal. I barebooted the whole thing and I suspect if you were in microspikes you would take them off--although I saw several groups coming up the Glenncliff Trail wearing them.

The ridgeline was very windy and quite cold, and above treeline is icy and snowy, although, again, I barebooted with little difficulty. It's still quite wintry up there! One could easily have worn a facemask and goggles. I ran up and down in shorts and sneakers, but it was challenging at the summit.
