All depends on when you go. I've only done Allen in Winter. Both times in January. First time encountered deep unconsolidated snow on the ascent. Two steps forward and slide one back. Spent almost two hours on the steep section, before turning back less than 200 vertical from the summit. Second time was a cake walk. Packed trail the whole way in. Both times the trip took around ten hours. Both times skied from the parking lot to the gravel pit, then switched to snowshoes for the ascent.

With the amount of foot traffic in the past few years, most trails are packed in within a few days.
