road is closed a half mile above the thistledown campground at ~9100'. however the camp bird and revenue mine are still open and operating, and are plowing the road to junction of governor basin road and Yankee boy basin road at approximately 10,800'. the snow on the road above the junction is 2-3 feet deep, and my friend and i put down a skin track for a half mile or so since we were just going up to enjoy the weather and the scenery, not to climb.

because the road is being plowed, there is no snow base to the road and it cannot be skied below the junction unless you want to ski on gravel.
