Depending on your vehicle, you can get up past the winter closure area. In a sedan we made it a bit past the plowed bit, which turning into a 10 mi RT for Sherman which we did in 6 hrs. The road has a few drifts to walk on, but snowshoes or microspikes are not needed. There is a snow field to travel up as you make your way up to the saddle. I found my microspikes very helpful for that snow field and a small portion of the summit pitch along the ridgeline. You could porbably do fine without microspikes, but I found the extra traction helpful, especially on my descent.
