Made it up there easily on Thursday (11-1-12) in a front wheel drive Accord with no problems whatsoever. At 6am the few stretches of frozen snowpacked road were easy to negotiate. The snow was kind of granular and seemed to provide good traction. Didn't need chains, but I have pretty good all-season tires on the car. On the way down, after a fairly warm day up there, the road was wet and muddy, and the snow was slushy. Ground clearance is not a problem either, you just steer around a few rocks and potholes. Drive slow. There was the occasional hunter with pickup truck along the road. Have fun.
