As of 5/30 the snow drift 3/4 up the Grizzy Gulch road is still there. Using my 4WD Toyota truck and another‘s Jeep, we eventually broke through the drift but it required mutual pull-outs with a tow strap. Due to the rapid melt/run off, we encountered two very deep pools of water after the last stream crossing. DO NOT attempt unless you have a buddy/winch/snorkel. It is very deep and you could easily kill your engine or get stuck. If you can cross the pools you‘ll be able to get to about 1/2 mile from the tuning fork route until the road is completely blocked by snow (and remember, the pools will get deeper as the day goes on).
