As of 3/4, yes, it is very clear. There was no snow and no standing water/mud anywhere on the road over Hunter Pass, pretty dry. See my ride report here for details: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=869090
However, I heard that last weekend there was snow up there, so I am not sure how it is now.
I should be making another pass through there this weekend and will report back.
