Blue Mountain hiking?

I'm thinking of doing the Blue Mountain hike this weekend.

Considering the wildly varying weather here downstate; any recent reports of what the trail is like at the moment? I'll be using microspikes, but is there enough snow to justify bringing snowshoes as well?

Thanks!
- Rich

I'd bring them, looks like at least a foot probably more at elevation

No boots on the ground, but ilsnow.com infers you will need snowshoes. They got a good dumping from this last storm.

The January 3 Backcountry report on the DEC Website says to have snowshoes and microspikes for anything over 3000 feet, and to use them as warranted. And that was before this last storm

I've seen snow on Blue Mountain in early June. But it is a friendly Mountain to climb. Nice view from the tower.
