I parked at a campsite at around 10,900 ft. There is one large, steep drift high on the shelf section of Hermit Pass Rd to deal with. I didn't bring my spikes, and I made it across. That being said, it's worth carrying spikes to deal with that drift, as you'd slide for a little ways if you fell. One other large drift in the final switchback of the road can be avoided using the social trail above/near the road. No other snow to worry about.
