Hiked from the 2WD TH up the road to the radio towers before being turned around by high winds. Road is about 80-90% snow covered, with a good trench established. Snowshoes were unnecessary up to the radio towers, but microspikes were helpful on the way down. I wouldn't be surprised if the trench is drifted in above the radio towers so I'd guess snowshoes would be helpful on the upper part of the road. Snow was nice and firm in the morning, but was softening up a bit when I came back down at 11am. It could be a bit post-holey in late afternoon on a warm day.
