As of October 8th, 2019 most high country roads are now open. Conditions can change very quickly this time of year. Some snow fell recently on some peaks so north facing roads above 11,000 feet should be driven with extreme caution. Forecast of cold and snow later this week may shut many or most roads for the winter.
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.
Watch for county road crews and bulldozers! Give them plenty of room to work, they are not expecting traffic. They request at staying back at least 200 feet.
Conditions can change rapidly, be careful of the weather.
