As of November 15th, 2019 most high country passes are now closed for the winter. Conditions can change very quickly this time of year. Snow that fell on the peaks have left the high passes snow covered and icy on north facing slopes. All passes should be considered closed and travel at your own risk.
Roads will be listed as “Closed” if they are officially closed or the are reliably reported to be impassable. Closed roads are closed to wheeled vehicles. Forest Roads, BLM Roads and unmaintained County Roads are open to snow machines, foot and ski traffic.
Conditions can change rapidly, be careful of the weather.
