While only 3" of snow have fallen in March at the Wolf Creek ski 
area, there is still plenty of snow there. A quick look at some 
snotel sites indicate 2008 snowpack is about 5% higher than 2005 for 
this time of year at the north and south end of Colorado.  You might 
check out Pony Express's journal to see what he encountered in 2005 
heading north from Cumbres Pass:


2005 was a very dry year up here in Montana, so most hikers headed 
southbound. Montana's 2008 snowpack looks similar to 2006, so you 
might check out some journals from that year. Not sure from your 
question if you are concerned about Colorado's snowpack for 
southbound hikers, but by the time you reach Colorado this winter's 
snow will be gone. A southbound hike is definitely feasible.
