The road has snow it as soon as you leave the 2wd trailhead. We were able to drive up to about 10,700ft in a modified 4wd. We stopped because there was water flowing down the road and it was covered in ice. A stock xtera made it less than a mile past the 2wd trailhead and stopped before a steep icy bit in the road. The snow is not deep, but the road is very slippery in places. People on ATV's made it up above 12,000 fit a ways into the switchbacks.

The trail was a mix of dry conditions and walking through ankle deep snow. The deepest drifts were knee deep. Did not need gators, traction, or snow shoes.
