How much snow on Snek Dike Approach (and getting to the cables)?

Anyone been up/down the Snake Dike this year? Is there still enough snow down that one can snow shoe over everything?

What's the deal with getting to the cables with the snow/ice? My concern with the cables is walking around on a super iced over slab late in the day (never done it). Maybe it's no big deal? High sierra cam isn't working right now.

I went down the approach last year with a monster haul bag. Going up the thing with snow shoes on my back would really round out the whole experience.
