Trail was great, no snow on the peak, good for January. Trail is well maintained, lake near the top was a nice place for a rest stop, could be a bit better marked in that area and we had to do some exploring to re-find the trail, but the rest was straightforward. Definitely want a truck or SUV with good clearance as there are some massive trenches and ramps to drive over, fairly easy on dry ground but wouldn't want to do it if it was raining. Hike is fairly easy going most of the way, with some great rest spots and a very rewarding scenic view from the top. The hike took 3-5 hours and was of moderate difficulty. I did it with a group of two friends who are experienced weekend hikers and one novice hiker who has never climbed a mountain before, we did it without too much difficulty, everyone got a good workout of it, fully recommend this hike for the novice/intermediate dayhiker.

I was surprised to find the trail dry and completely snow-free. An easy, very gradual trail with lots of ups and downs along the forested ridge. Most logs and ladders have recently been covered with brand-new metal netting, and there was very little ice on the rocks at the top. Unfortunately, all view points have overgrown, so there wasn't much to look at until 50m before the so-called "Vedder Peak". Took us 2h there and 1h 20min back. Lots of mountain bikes, motorbikes and ATVs, but they all showed up later and didn't use the hiking trail.

Snow started low on the dirt road but once on the hiking trail it was crusty and firm. Trail is thoroughly flagged. Some ATVs had tried the hiking section of the trail. Snow on dirt road had melted and turned to a river of mud by afternoon.

Lots of snow almost from the beginning but easy to walk on without snowshoes. Note that this is now a 17.5 km hike with an extra 200 m elevation gain due to the length of logging road that must be hiked (the hike books talk about driving 3 km up that road but it's no longer possible without high clearance).
