As long as it is not commercial or putting a plow, grader, loader or other heavy equipment on the road, I don't think it would be even in a gray area.
This is the ride I hitched to the top in 2013 after thoroughly burying my Explorer lower down. I knew I would, I just had to see how bad. We did get the big diesel stuck about 10 or 12 times.
A few times he was able to rock it out, but most of the time we were digging to get enough clearance. You can see in the more shaded flat spots it gets deep. This was on May 11th, 2013 with the SWE sitting at exactly 8.0 which it is today. A couple days later we made it in fine. Still had to shovel some but it wasn't bad at all. We drove all of our rigs out and left one in that the shuttle companies picked up later in the week. You don't want to count on what a shuttle company says vs reality of how you can get in and out.
I think they are under new ownership now but the one referenced above.....I would trust even less in the past.
