Details

Independence Pass (Indy Pass to some locals) offers a huge variety of opportunities for a wide range of backcountry skiers because of the terrain options, as well as the countless opportunities for hiking.  The road (highway 82) crests Independence Pass, making it perfect for backcountry skiing with relatively easy access to start out.

How to Get There

Independence Pass Road (Highway 82), can be reached via the town of Aspen (it is 20 miles east of Aspen) or via the East, from Leadville/Highway 24.  There are large signs marking Independence Pass Highway, but please be advised that this road is closed in the winter because of the massive amounts of snow.
