Thats interesting. Here is a satellite image from 4/21. Looks pretty snow free on the south facing slopes.
Yes, I got a few emails from the conservancy about the road conditions. Here's one I got this morning..
I am reaching out to inform you that we are experiencing delays in opening the preserve due to road conditions. At best, we are likely still 10 days out from access, worst case scenario is 3 weeks out. There is still a large amount of snow and fallen debris to contend with on the road. In addition, the river is currently experiencing high turbidity. We anticipate opening fully by the end of May. Please contact USFS for further road updates. We will continue to reach out given any changes.
Thanks for your patience."
