Summer is usually best for the average backpacker.
In winter, the area, despite its use by skiers it is quiet deserted and does require good snowshoes, and in places crampons, ice picks/ski poles may also be required. Finally the peak is very exposed, so good goggles and a face mask are a good idea.
It is also a good training site for anyone who wants to work on thier Alpine skills.
