Does anyone have info on the condition of the Harts Pass road after the latest weekend's weather.

I know that previously it had damage but was drivable near Deadhorse Point, but I want to find out if recent weather has changed that.

I'm mostly interested in whether anyone has recent info on whether snow has affected the drivability of the road, because I'm planning a trip starting Tuesday.  It would be great to have some info before then.

I called the Methow Ranger Station early this week, I had heard the road washed out and couldn't find any current info.  They told me it was drivable to the end.  That was before the snow.

It's still very early fall.  I would expect whatever's up there to melt, before the winter snows come in and don't leave until June.  Last (?) year I hiked up there with almost a foot of powder on the ground, when I came back I told people the day lady was singing at Harts Pass, and it was gone a week later.  It's still early enough for something like that to happen again.

I drove the road a week ago. The washout was repaired. No problems at all. Don't know about snow from this past weekend though.

SnoTel site at Hart's Pass reads 6 inches of snow depth, which is probably enough to make driving a bit tricky higher up

Bumping this in case anybody has been up there in the last few days.  There's been sunshine and maybe the snow has melted?

The road was plowed and people were able to get up there 24 hours ago. There were pictures on the PCT FB group. Snow was almost melted down to barely covering the ground.
