Srinagar - Leh Highway is currently one-way. It has been closing off and on, I expect it to close in a couple of week and until then, it will be unreliable at best. Not a good option to cross it, if you're traveling by your own vehicle.

Over 250 people and 80 vehicles were rescued yesterday by authorities from Zoji La. The vehicles had gotten stuck there due to heavy snowfall. Now authorities are advising people to use snowchain while crossing the pass i.e. it is best to avoid it now, if you're a tourist.

WEATHER UPDATE 31 JAN 2019, Thurs.

Get ready for another good and huge SNOWSTORM.

by 30 Jan, Wed, it would have arrived over all of Kashmir Valley, and it looks like Srinagar will get some nice snowfall.
On 31 Jan, Thrus, it would have covered most of Himalayas,
So look at the prominent locations marked on this upload, and decided when you want to get there. If you going to another location, then see where are you closest to the location marked here and you should get a good idea.
Road conditions will be sever for BLACK ICE, as in most areas the snow from previous storm would not have melted, and sub zero temp would have frozen the water on the road when the sun came out.
So be really prepared this time.

And it will be fun. get stuck somewhere, maybe you will have to leave your bike or car behind for the rest of the season and then in March or April come back and collect your vehicle.
So carry SNWO CHAINS or SNOW ZIP TIES or just ROPE to wrap around the wheels to get you out of trouble.
