Independence Pass status

Postby Eph 2 5 » Thu Sep 13, 2012 7:59 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows whether Independence Pass is still open after the recent snow. I'm assuming it is, but CDOT said "no data" on the road status. Thanks for your help.

Drove over Indy a few hours ago. Not a flake of snow anywhere to be found. There was some snow up high on La Plata.
So pleas'd at first the towering Alps we try,
Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky,
Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise!

Should be open till Nov 1, unless we get some big snow events.

The norm seems to be last couple of days of October to the first few of November. November 7th is the scheduled date for closure. In 2006 it closed on October 20th. It can close temporarily in September for early season snowfall.
