I can see the mounted container in /mnt/w/ but cannot access any contents there.

After unlocking the bitlocker volume/partition on Windows, execute on WSL:

sudo mount -t drvfs -o uid=1000,gid=1000 W: /mnt/w

What works for me, is unlocking the bitlocker volume in Windows before starting the Ubuntu bash (WSL). If I start the WSL bash before unlocking, I won't see anything until rebooting Windows and then unlocking the volume before launching the WSL bash.
