Do other roads in Tibet close during the winter time due to snow?

Absolutely. Some roads in the Kham regions of the TAR and western Sichuan can get heavy snow in the winter closing roads for many days at a time. In general though, most of the areas that foreign travelers go to won't have any problems with closed roads due to snow. The only real exception is the road up to Nam Tso. This road is often closed for weeks at a time during the winter.
