Inch or so of snow on the road, packed down well by other traffic. Road is in great shape with a few avoidable potholes, and one or two spots of washboarding. Dirt road is actually smoother than the "paved" section just before it. Took a 2WD VW Beetle up there. Traction control didn‘t kick in. I think 4WD would be needed if the hills became icey, and good ground clearance if the snow was too deep.
