Yes, we rode south to north last year during the same week in February on our way back from Big Bend. Stayed the night at Hannagan Meadows and there was only one other group of guests there. Snow pack was decent at 9,000 ft but roads were clear and the sun was shinning. Super fun road. Things could have been way different. I recall seeing a picture in the lobby taken on Memorial Day weekend several years back - total white out conditions in the middle of a blizzard.
