We have good news for drivers seeking a quicker trip to Aspen - Independence Pass is set to open at noon today. Referred to by the Aspen Times as "the back door to Aspen," driving over the pass into town shaves about 30 minutes off the drive from Denver. It's an incredibly scenic highway with plenty of amazing scenery to take in. However, it's not for the faint of heart - there are areas with extremely limited space and visibility around tight turns, so we recommend driving this route in the daylight hours.
