It is another sign that winder is on its way. Independence Pass is officially closed for the season.

The pass closed October 31st, seven days ahead of schedule, but C-DOT said it was not sure at the time if the closure would remain in place for the rest of the season. Today C-DOT announced it will remain closed.

The Pass closes every year because of heavy snowfall and dangerous conditions along the 12,095- foot pass. It will reopen for Memorial Day weekend, weather permitting.

While the pass is closed, drivers can take I-70 to Greenwood Springs and SH 82 into Aspen.
