Climbed Sneffels on Nov 17th. Camp bird road is "driveable" with chains, 4wd etc.. up to the Revenue mine. My vehicle wasn't up to it so I walked from below the switchbacks, adding an extra 5k or so to the approach. Deep snow and post-holing form 10,000-12,000'. Snowshoes are highly recommend. The standard route above the summer upper trailhead is wind blown and relativity easy, however the upper summit couloir has deep snow and poorly bonded windslab in places. The "V-notch" was full of snow and a bit tricky.
