Each year, the two-lane, 12,095-foot pass closes for the winter for the safety of the traveling public and CDOT maintenance crews. The closure typically occurs in early November and the highway is almost always re-opened on the Thursday prior to Memorial Day each May. While this 2011-12 winter season has been very mild, it is too soon to predict or plan for an early opening of the pass. However, following snow removal and roadway/sign repairs, CDOT maintenance crews will assess the potential for an earlier May opening based on weather forecasts at that time. Please check our Traveler Information page to determine if there are projects, alerts or temporary closures of the pass due to weather at www.cotrip.org.
