Call the Lake County Sheriff's office @ 719-486-1249 or the San Isabel National Forest @ 719-486-0749. (For the latter, see if you can speak with the Wilderness Ranger-Steve.) Real helpful in getting beta when I climbed Mt. Massive on Dec. 05th. And back then we were able to drive all the way to the N. Halfmoon Creek TH in standard 4x4's.

Good luck.

Based on the amount of snow we got in town today I would say you probably can't get much past where the forest starts. You should be safe skinning or snowshoeing in and I can't imagine there is much snow one you get to the sw slopes. It has been a gale on the peaks for a while now and a lot of snow is blowing off the west faces.
