Road is packed to MM 3. Frequent drifting from there to summit parking lot, sometimes spanning 90-100% of the road. Drifts were deepest/most obnoxious between MM 11-12, but if you're walking, it's not worth the weight of flotation.

Avy concerns are minimal in most of the hot spots, as there isn't really enough snow to slide at present. One exception is the slope above MM 8 (pics attached), which looks like it has already slid and could become unstable again.

Trail from parking lot to summit has ankle-knee-deep snow, which can be avoided by rock-hopping.

Thank you for posting an update, we don't hear much about the road even though lots of people use it.
I think you were up there one of the last times I was there, too. Mike
