The 95 south through NV to the 6 into Bishop will get you around the highest passes on 395, might add mileage though.
Wow, I totally forgot about the high parts of 395 as a potential issue. We froze our asses off through there coming back from DV in early March a couple of years ago.
Rain for 3 days + Freezing Temps = Frozen Ignition

And passes in Oregon, too... damn.
I'll have to call it as it happens, depending on weather. Thanks fo the heads up!
