As of Dec 5, 2019

*Currently, San Juan County has issued CLOSURES on all their backcountry passes. San Miguel, Hinsdale, and Ouray County issued a travel at your own risk advisory.  The counties have stopped maintaining the roads/passes. Snow accumulation varies greatly depending on elevation and north/south facing.

Be aware that passes can vary with weather any time of year. Some may be slick in areas, washed out or snow covered, even if they are listed as OPEN.  Please don't go beyond where you are comfortable driving. Be safe out there!

THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL INSTANCES OF ROAD CLOSURE SIGNS AND BARRICADES BEING REMOVED OR DRIVEN AROUND. Anyone caught will be reported to the Sheriff's Department. Driving on closed roads can seriously damage the roadway, as well as put your vehicle at risk. Driving off trail seriously impaces the fragile tundra.
