The Fourmile Creek (Fairplay) road almost certainly is passable. On a comparable dirt road in the same area yesterday, I was able to drive seven miles in to 11,500' with only minimal amounts of snow on the road--most of which had significantly melted by the end of the day.

Bill posted a positive report on Mosquito Gulch a week ago (nearby, similar elevation).
