The road is dry and passable by 2wd cars up until the 4x4 road. I think only the most highly modified 4x4s could make it up the 4wd road and still probably not very far due to the snow drifts. The trail is snow on and off. Unfortunately snowshoes were difficult to use due to the inconsistent snow conditions. Above tree line snowshoes might be handy in the future when the snow is soft enough due to the continuous fields. Today however snowshoes were not "necessary" as each step only caused an inch or so sink to occur. Trekking poles or an axe would come in handy as would microspikes.
