The road is clear and it only becomes snowy/icy in the last .2 miles - not deep and very easy for my Rav 4, a 2wd w/ front wheel could have made it. We found an old boot track in the snow for the first half mile, but it disappeared after that. After that point, the snow becomes deep and powdery; it made for very slow going and we did not summit Spread Eagle. The couloir on Spread Eagle had three to four foot depths of poorly consolidated snow - postholing to the knee even with snowshoes.
