Winter gate is still OPEN. Able to drive to the OUTHOUSE. Could have gone further. There are icy patches. See photos.

I only posted photos of ice. 90% of the drive was on dry road. The most snow was just in the first mile after the ice park. After the fork where Yankee Boy and Governors Basin split, it was all clear. A pleasant surprise. I parked at the outhouse, but someone had driven their 4 wheeler to within about 1/2 mile of the top. USE EXTREME CARE coming down. Easier to get up without getting out of control. 4WD only. 2 wd will get stuck way down near the ice park.
