They are still adding to the snow pack, not subtracting. I doubt you'll get far at all.

If your talking about the Empire Hilton you might be able to reach it in June. I can't speek for that particular trail but on the other side of the valley (Bard Ck. and Dem/Rep Mt.) at the same alt.to the SW snow pack is in the 10' range and just over the hill (Fall River Res./Chinn Lk.) to the NE there are drifts up to 12-14' feet.

Best for snowmobiles not wheeled vehicles.

I was talking about the Hilton. I knew that last year it was accessible in May that's why I was wondering about it this year.

I made it within a mile of Fall River reservoir (just below chinns lake) a few weeks ago. Just hiked the rest of the way. But that was before the recent snow...

Yeah, but the only reason you could get that far up is beacuse Dale plows the road to where you stoped in the picture. Those wind blown drifts are deeper then one might think.

Guessing it will be hard to get up in the mountain trails for at least a month or more do to the continuance of snow. Our state needs it so I can't complain.
