I was in Prescott for work yesterday and I wanted to spend some time in the snow. There's not a lot of good data online for snow depth on Mt. Union, but instagram's recent posts helped to give me an idea of what to expect. I was surprised by how much snow there was, and for several portions, wished I had brought my xc-skis or snowshoes. I only had time to make it to the saddle, but I really enjoyed the views and the mixed conifer forest just a few miles from Prescott.

A note about the access roads to the TH in winter:
I drove up senator highway and then turned on to Walker Road at Hassayampa Reservoir. This was pretty sketchy on the north facing slopes. There was a lot of ice and relatively unpacked snow. I probably wouldn't drive this again in my subaru forester (at least not when there's that much ice on those hills and tight corners).
