The East Side
A ride out to Ash Creek Butte saw varying conditions. Road 19 is patchy and icy and will be hard on sleds until at least 4,800 ft. If continuing out towards Trout Creek along Pilgrim Creek Road, you'll find mostly continuous snow after the point indicated in the map above. Trails are firm with a bit of new snow on top in places.
Ash Creek Butte has 3-5 inches of new snow, though this mostly limited to sheltered areas and is not widespread. The bowl is scoured and wind-affected. There was about 55 inches (140 cm) of snow there. No signs of wind slab formation were observed.
