Driving to Aspen Square from Denver

During the frequent closures of I-70 through Glenwood Canyon, we are encouraging our guests driving from Denver to take the alternate route to Aspen provided on COTRIP.ORG, or to go over Independence Pass. Here are the directions over Independence Pass:

  • I-70 West to Copper Mountain (Exit 195)
  • Take exit 195 onto S. Hwy 91 and follow the road to Leadville. Hwy 91 merges with Hwy 24. As you drive through Leadville, you are now on Hwy 24
  • Follow Hwy 24 past Leadville to the turn off to Twin Lakes (Hwy 82)
  • Turn right onto Hwy 82 - this is a T-intersection, there is no left turn
  • Hwy 82 will take you up and over Independence Pass and down into Aspen
  • Once in Aspen, continue straight through the four-way stop. The road becomes Cooper Avenue
  • Aspen Square's lobby entrance is at 617 E. Cooper Avenue,  a half block past City Market on the left
