Snowshoeing the Tioga Road

I hear a lot about people skiing up Lee Vining Canyon or from Snow Creek up to Tuolumne Meadows, and I'm wondering if it's possible to do this as a snowshoeing destination. I have no ski experience, nor any particular inclination to learn, but I enjoy substantial snowshoeing in Tahoe and along Glacier Point Road.

South Roly Poly Mountain

Always thought this peak's name was funny: South Yolla Bolly Mountain. I guess it's also known as Mt Linn.

Anyway...does anyone want to take a stab at it this winter? I understand there's a forest service gate that is sure to be closed, but I'm down for a long approach...

PS. Anyone with some actual knowledge ...

RMNP alpine mixed/ice routes with low avy danger?

(or other Front Range locations cool, too) Any recommendations? Short approaches & straightforward descents a plus too! Up to WI3+ M4 mid 5th range would be great! Recommendations appreciated! Happy new year & safe climbing, all!
