Road is passable for any vehicle all the way to the parking area at the Mosquito Pass junction. Sorry, Mosquito Pass itself is closed. After that, the 4WD road into the basin towards Buckskin and Tweto has 1-4” of snow with minimal drifting. The basin to Tweto’s ridge holds even less snow. The ridge itself has small pockets of snow in between the talus, but nothing to get excited about. Snowshoes completely unnecessary. Carried but did not even think of using microspikes.

Generally speaking, the northern Tenmile and Gore ranges have a decent cover of snow. The southern area is fairly dry, including North Star, Quandary, Hoosier Ridge, Bross, and Lincoln.

Would add the saddle between Tweto and Treasurevault has drifted snow mostly concealing the talus. Potential orthopedic nightmare. Managed to posthole to my waist a couple of times. Definitely not a deal breaker, but slow going in places.
Conditions were surprisingly dry in the area - even after last weekend's storm.
