Independence Pass is Open!
The highway crews had so much snow to plow and move away from the road over Independence Pass this spring, but the job is done now and the pass is open. Snowfall up on the pass was amazing this winter, and the road clearing job was monumental. The crews have it done now, and travelers can experience the majesty of the high country scenery once again. normally open from Memorial Day to late October, the pass is not kept clear in the winter. There is still amazing snow up on the sides of the pass road, and conditions can be icy. Drive carefully, and enjoy the views!
