I went a week ago (Sunday) from the Grant side and the road conditions were ok... Snowpacked and a little slick here and there. I would say that a 2X is not a good option with rear wheel only, unless you have studded snows. Front wheel drive should be ok (w/ good tires).
As far as the conditions, we have some baked crust up top but really nice, soft coverage in the shade near the trees. We didn't dig a pit (probably should have for practice / safe-side, but the conditions appeared to be very stable and we stayed near within the younger growth w/ lots of anchor points. It probably got baked up a little more this past week, but covered up again with the latest snow. I would definitely be digging a pit if I were heading up there this weekend.
