Good news for tourists and adventures came when Pitkin officials announced the opening of Maroon Creek road to the public on May 24th. The original date for the road opening was 15 May, but the date was postponed due to the impact of avalanches and poor road conditions. Due to the state road crew’s anticipated work, road is once again open for summer tourists.

The crew has cleared the road up and down of the Independence Pass. Earlier, parking area service was managed by White River National Forest, but now the road is clear and there will be no parking issues. Pitkin county Road and Bridge department began to clear the road two days before the fixed date April 29 to meet with the scheduled opening of the road.

Maroon Bells area faces an average snowfall every year and takes two to three weeks to get cleared. But this winter, five avalanches impacted the area. The state road crew showed their anticipation and enthusiasm towards the work and cleared the snow before it becomes too late. Road to the Maroon bells lake is open now and Roaring Fork Transportation Authority has started transportation service to the lake from June 15.

Mattice is the key member of the crew, and he said, “Digging through the debris turned out to be much easier than we thought, no winter has been comparable to this in terms of debris and the number of slides. Old avalanche paths ran, and new ones were formed in steeper terrain.”
