For those still unconcerned about the weather on all passes... here's an article describing the deaths and damage floods made few years ago:

It is great to talk about how you were one of the few that dared to go into the valley under bad conditions.
Not so great to be the one that we mourne as being lost on the way in, or out, in those conditions.
The threat of heavy snow is bad. The threat of flash floods is worse.
There is always next year.

Those conditions are real. Most people should not be trying South Pass, prepared or otherwise.  It is a job right now for an expert driver with a very capable rig.

Just read this alert

Is this just to scare unprepared drivers?

Lots of radar returns in the area this morning. Forecast is snow. Safe travels everyone.

Hi Kandy, 

I think you'll be OK, but there WILL be snow, and likely quite a bit of it. Be sure to bring a shovel and other recovery gear!

See you out there! I'm in the black jeep wrangler with "TOTSMSC" plates [wink]

Driving in tomorrow Sat Feb 16th. From Sacramento. Always have taken north pass, but sounds like South pass is the way to go this year in. Hoping for no snow added to current white stuff. Weather reports say otherwise. Nissan X-Terra Off Road Blue 4x4. Plate: RD GYSPY, in case you see me stuck.

Been to saline twice came through panamint springs then made the right on the well graded road. What is the name of that road?

Really from Vegas you can do either lipencot or South Pass easily. Lippencot is a more treacherous road, but lower in elevation. What are you driving?
