What is the current situation of Shimla-Narkanda-Peo stretch? Has the current snowfall blocked the road?

Good to see snow all around on the hills. I always wanted a drive on the white Spiti but don't own a car, let me know if anyone is looking for partner for a drive to white Spiti by end of Jan or Feb or even Mar. I have been to Spiti twice on my bike but never been there during the peak winter season. Please pm me if your are looking for someone.

PS: I cant drive, I can only ride.
