Posting this a bit late. Drove up the Twisp River road (snow free) on 5/26. The Scatter Lake trail is snow free to about 5500', by 5600' it was entirely under snow. The snow was compact and made for easy booting to Scatter Lake at 7000'. From the lake I altered the Summit Routes route description slightly to avoid an obvious cornice and booted to the summit, definitely some post holing involved. You can put your skis on at the summit and ski to the lake by staying skiers left as you descend to avoid some bare rocks and the gully with the cornice. It was easy to ski and pick a way through the trees back down to 5500' or so for the switch back to hiking boots. The trail is good enough for sturdy Tevas if so inclined. 7hrs up from trailhead, 1.5 hrs on summit, 3 hrs back down to trailhead.
