Ophir Pass

According to the San Miguel County website, Ophir Pass is currently closed (as well as Imogene Pass and Black Bear Pass).

I did see a jeep tour ride come down the pass yesterday, but they very well could’ve drove a ways up and turned around.  Apparently, the hold up is due to downed trees vs. an overabundance of snowfall.  Here is a photo I took of the pass yesterday.  There is still plenty of snow visible at the higher elevations.  I’m sure there’s a fairly tall shaved wall of snow at the summit.
