Ebbetts Pass Is Open, May 9, 2024

See the latest here.

A credible source assures us that the pass will open today, May 9th, 2024, at 2 pm.  We aren’t sure if this is a record, but it certainly is earlier than usual.  It might be time to plan a drive over the pass this weekend to admire the scenery and scope out the condition of the forest roads and trails.

There is likely still lots of snow and snow melt, please exert caution and drive carefully. And, remember that forest roads and trails that leave the immediate vicinity of the highway may still be closed.

Thank you to all the folks who’ve been working to make this happen.

See them open the gates here.

Happy Spring!
