That would be a 135 mile loop and I think this is possible even with the snow because Lippencott and Steele Pass don't seem to have problems with snow and ice when south pass, hunter mtn and north pass are closed with snow.
Is this a correct assumption?
Just did the ride you are thinking about a couple of days ago. No issues with snow or ice on that loop. Did hit some snow yesterday going up South Park and Rogers pass.
You can see some pictures on our ride report at: Death Valley Trip 2009
