When do they close it from the 70 side?

Sorry this is from 2011, but hopefully it gives a general indication of their normal closure plan:

Lower down it states:
Special Considerations:
Clear Creek County will close Guanella Pass Road at the Naylor Lake intersection and approximately 0.8 miles north of the Park/Clear Creek County line on November 25, 2011. Winter maintenance (snow removal) will occur on a first-day basis to Cabin Creek Hydroelectric Plant and then on a third/fourth-day basis to the Naylor Lake intersection after a snowfall. The Guanella Pass Road Information Line at 303-679-2422 ext 2 is available for updates.

Seems like you should be safe for quite a bit more time. Can always call that phone number to see if they have anything more definitive for this year.
