Boreas Pass Rd closed?

Postby IHikeLikeAGirl » Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:16 am

I have seen a few web sites that state that Boreas Pass closes the first week of November, but can't seem to find confirmation that, that actually happened this year with the low snowfall.

Anyone know?

Valerie--
I was pondering this question last month and called the Fairplay ranger station, asking if the Como side would be open.
They provided an immediate answer, and we went hiking!

Thanks Matt!

They closed it yesterday, both sides. Doing some maintenance up there so, the gate may be open for some construction vehicles, but it is officially closed.

FYI: Breckenridge side number is: 970-668-3590
