On the highest sections of the Beef Basin loop, it's snowed on the the last two times I've been thru. This was the first week of May. I would suggest the high country to Blanding should be skirted.
FYI, I plan on running an MT-43 rear. It is fine even in sand. In the gooey mud, it won't matter - any tire is going to back up.
