Hiked Evans B and "Repeater" from Leadville side of Mosquito Pass. CO 3 is dry to about 11,000/11,100 where plowing stops just after a bend in the road a bit before Famous Mine. There is a large, deep patch of snow that stops vehicles at this point and it will probably linger for awhile yet. After that, the road is patchy snow, ice, and bare spots. I didn't use any flotation and didn't regret not bringing any as the snow was plenty firm in the afternoon. Very little snow on the ridgeline. Traction and ice axe unnecessary.
