The first major snowstorm of the season is hitting the high country and the Colorado Department of Transportation says that means it is time to close down Independence Pass.

CDOT says they kept the pass, which runs between Aspen and Twin Lakes south of Leadville, open two days beyond their annual goal date of Nov. 7.

Because of the winter storm CDOT’s crews will be out on a 24-hour operation until they reach dry roads.

This is also a good reminder to make sure your car is winter ready, including refreshing those emergency supplies.
