as of 2 weeks ago, may 28th into the first week of june, the trail from lolo pass to wahtum lake was impassable due to a 10 ft deep glacier over the trail near bull run lake. i wouldnt atempt it without an ice axe and crampons. even then its very sketchy. the glacier wasnt too steep, however, as it went down the hill, it gets steeper and then to a vertical drop. we had to repell off the glacier on a piece of para chord to what i am guessing was lolo pass rd. however, the road itself was covered in 3 ft of packed snow. we ended up bush wacking south of butcher knife peak to lost lake and had to hitch a ride to i84.
