The approach is mostly clear of snow and completely clear of people. We saw only one other pair on Sunday (they did the climb). The snow makes for very nice walking (no snoeshoes or crampons). The south buttress is completely dry, but the descent might require some some care because of snow.
I wish we'd actually climbed the thing, but with the snow back there, the approach and return made for two very scenic and enjoyable dayhikes.
