I did not attempt to climb American Pk., but I did drive up into American Basin on Monday, to get a look at the coverage on the couloirs. As you can see, there has been plenty of avalanche activity in this area. If you were going to make an attempt for American or Handies from American Basin, you can drive to the creek crossing as has been reported, then park there, and you would be able to skin or snowshoe from that very point. That whole area is COVERED with snow.
