Last update still accurate, you can drive a little ways past the first creek crossing but after that there are still some deep patches of snow in the trees that will likely take a couple weeks to melt. There is also substantial avalanche debris that will take a few weeks to melt. The debris includes lots of trees that will need to be removed. As for the 4wd road to the upper basin, this is buried quickly after the avalanche debris and I would guess it will be at least three weeks before this is clear, possibly longer with cooler weather.
