Intermittent snow - not hard to cross

Really wet conditions to the lake.  We were tentatively headed to Dragontail Peak.  Snow on Aasgard and the moisture turned us back about halfway up Aasgard.  It started snowing, we had the gear for the snow slopes (axe, crampons), but were a bit wet so opted to bail for another day.  Met great people at the lake on the way down.  They had beef jerkey and shared.  Win.
