Snowline On Sneffels and Northern San Juans

Anybody know how low the snowline has fallen so far near Sneffels and Ouray? Also, how far can I drive up the road to Yankee Boy Basin with a Honda Civic? Thanks a lot. :D

Snow line varies a lot. Starts around 10K. You won't get too far with a civic. 5 or 6 miles due to clearance problems....not snow.
