From what I can recall, having been there my last time near the tail-end of summer, the shingles had been replaced. I'm not positive about the tower steps, but I don't seem to remember anything seeming too sketchy on the way up, so if I had to wager a guess I would say, yes, some of the treads have been replaced.

I'm also quite sure I remember a lock on the cabin door, but it could surely have since been removed or my memory is possibly incorrect. It certainly wouldn't be the first time (for a lock removal or my memory being fallible ).

Also, as I mentioned and posted a couple pictures of in a previous thread, the helipad has been refurbished to the point that it would seem to be operational for whatever uses DEC deems fit. I would assume that would be the easier transportation of materials to the summit and facilitating any potential SAR operations, though that would only be my guess.
