The road to Missouri Gulch TH isn't passable beyond about 4 miles from the TH. If you are daring, try, and get stuck, a fantastic towing company is Gunsmoke Towing from BV :-)
Trail up to the stream crossing had been post-holed (thank you whoever man-handled that snow!) and my partner and I packed it down more with skis. Reached Missouri Gulch Basin, the area of avy danger, and turned back due to very poor snow conditions and a beacon out of batteries at 11,000'.
What a beautiful area. The skin up and ski down was a blast, although cut short. Definitely would recommend strapping on snow shoes or skis, the trail is packed now but the base is wonderfully deep.
