Climbed and skied the east fork on Saturday 6-18. We parked before the first stream crossing but you can probably drive another mile or so up the road pretty easily.

Snow on the route was a mixed bag until 13k, fresh powder and shin deep breakable crust from 12-13k, above 13k it was rock hard and consistent. If you follow the left fork the snow is continuous all the way to the summit. We waited on top until ~11am for the snow to soften up, skied down the ridge to the entrance for the east fork where the snow was still icy for the first few hundred feet. About halfway down the "Y" we crossed into the west fork and found some amazing snow conditions, ~1,000ft of June powder with some good corn below.
