[From Mike Buda] - driveable up to the first switchback at 930m probably without chains. Above 1000m the snowpack on the road will be difficult driving. Skinnable starting at 800m but really only skiable heading down to about 1000m.

[From Marco Signifredi] - Nov 18, 2023 Metal Dome Snow starts around 1000m where most of the people parked their cars but I was able to drive up to 1100m. A 4runner and Tacoma with chains tried to go further but they couldn’t make it. After 1100m I saw only traces of snowmbile.

2nd switchback, 3:15pm. Rock skis/boards only past this point
Driving down, just above 1st switchback, 3:40pm
Parking @ ~1,000m, 10am
Wet melting snow on the road increasing with elevation. Lots of vehicles parked before the first big switchback (~930m elevation), we drove further up the hill until deciding to call it when there was enough snow on the road for skinning & a good parking/turnaround spot at ~1,000m elevation. Could have put on chains & driven higher but probably not worth the hassle. Few more vehicles parked from 1,000-1,050m, one RAV4 made it to almost 1,100m stopping just before the 2nd switchback. On our way down was surprised to see a Mazda CX50 had taken advantage of the melt & driven above 1,150m, impressive! Anyway, this road will be snowmobile territory for the winter soon, in recent summers I've driven to its end & to 1,400m on Metal Dome spur in a stock Suzuki XL7.

Rough for sure. Made it up in a 2011 Forester (manual -no lift). Didn’t scrape once. Pick your lines and have some good tires!

Trail to the upper parking lot is very steep and has some rough and loose rock sections. Roads seams worn out from not suitable vehicles. Last kms has many large cross ditches. 4x4 is recommended. 4Runner with 3“ lift had no problem. Got a nail in my tire on this road. Be aware.

The road to the upper lot is in especially rough shape. You will almost certainly need a high clearance 4x4 as there are some massive water bars and numerous loose road sections.
