Catching back up with these reports, this one from the 14th. Fee Season is now in affect, and there are some dangers to be aware of:

FEE SEASON IS NOW IN EFFECT FOR MT. ADAMS

A Cascades Volcano Pass is required to climb Mt. Adams from June 1 to September 30.

Please be aware of Avalanche Danger below the False Summit (Piker's Peak) andCornices forming along ridges

If hiking below 7000 ft please fill out a self issue wilderness permit and attach to your pack.


There are also a few notes about road conditions:
  • The 8040 Road is open 3 miles past the Wicky Creek Shelter up to the Gotchen Creek Trailhead.  When parking do not block traffic.  Roads to the South Climb Trailhead will be slower to melt out this season due to unusually late winter like conditions.  
  •  The 23 Road between Randal and Trout Lake is closed due to snow.

Update: new report from the 23rd out, but no new information.

The full report from the Forest Service is available here.
