On Friday, March 8 we exited SV via North Pass.  It had gotten a dusting of snow from the storm, but we had no problems at the top.  Clearly hasn't been graded in years, lots of washouts to crawl through.  Washboard has been worse than this, though....

I am getting conflicting reports. Morning report states that chains and 4x4 are needed for N. Pass.
Has anybody gone in/out in the past couple of days? Appreciate any info. I am heading in on Sat.

Yeah, what's miserable about it?  When we left after Presidents' Day we cruised out the north with the trailer and the road seemed to be in standard condition.  What changed?

I was there a month ago and would take North Pass over South Pass. How was the North miserable?

I left yesterday after the storm and there is literally no snow on North Pass roadway.  Just some patches off to the side.  It looked like South Pass got it hard though.

Hey folks! Were at Remington! Heading to saline today! A little nervous about recent snowfall accumulation. We were planning on going in on the N pass and are driving a full sized 4wd van w BFG All Terrain tires. We have no chains but 4wd experience been in to the springs last five years. Anyone? Thx for your tips!!!

It snowed again 2/19 down low, probably put snow on South Pass and did put snow on North Pass because chains are required over Westgard Pass.  Probably won't last too long except in the shade.  15, 5, 58 all closed at various times, 14 and 395 a mess with wrecks.  Chains north on 395 from Bishop north.  whee!!

It did snow on North Pass area Friday 2/8, but weather forecast for next week+ is warming and lovely - no more storms - so likely the snow won't be an issue for much longer.  Bring chains anyway, and watch for ICE because it does refreeze every night!! 
It'll be nice during day and close to freezing at night, so bring warm stuff!!

The Sunday before Thanksgiving we were heading out and saw quite a variety of vehicles at the springs and coming in via North Pass. The Toyota Venza is what surprised me most. It was going quite fast through the lower portion of the area with coniferus trees below the switchbacks. Definitely not the right vehicle. When I went out two weeks ago there was hardly any snow on the road portion. It was easy and wouldn't have been a problem for a subie.
