As of New years weekend there was 2 rigs that we knew of that made it Down Lippencott. One was a all wheel drive Subaru and they said it was just fine and not washed out.

Hey Panda,
Cerro Gordo is a great trip in around June as long as you don' drop into the Saline Valley. Check out the altitude and you'll see how much cooler it is from the Valley floor. Try it in May but, still carry chains. Been there and Done that.

Cerro Gordo is a steep climb out of Lee Flat. My guess there may be snow and ice on the climb into Cerro Gordo from Lee Flat.

That road faces east, therefore may still have ice. The ascent and descent are STEEP GRADES. They be impassable. Be prepared to turn around. Carry chains for all four wheels.
