Was up Crickmer this weekend. Patchy snow even beside the main FSR, starts in earnest where the road more or less stop looking like a road (about half a km before the bridge and slot canyon). Little washout right before the bridge, but easy route around. Lots of alder and scrub along the road from there - was mostly flattened by the snow and ice, but would be a bit thick in the summer I think. About a foot of snow where you turn off the road into the cutblock, and increased fast from there. Drifting a bit along the ridge anywhere from half a meter to a meter in the hollows.
Someone was out with some machinery brushing out the road from the bottom pretty much all the way up to where it's not really road any more. Some culverts still need replacing, and some bigger holes fixed up, but looks like maybe they will be logging in there somewhere again sooner rather than later?
