You are free to drive through the highest parts of Rocky Mountain National Park and experience its stupid wondrous sights just about whenever you want, except at night, because the usual icy tundra just refuses to arrive.
The road closes around Oct. 23 in an average year, but we’re not in uncharted territory just yet.
Trail Ridge officially closed for the season on Nov. 4 the last two winters. The latest closing in recent years was Nov. 6, which happened in 2003 and 2008.
Meanwhile, Keystone Resort has pushed back opening day by one week, from Nov. 4 to Nov. 11.
In an effort to provide our guests with the best early-season conditions possible, we have made the difficult decision to delay Keystone's 2016/17 Opening Day. Unseasonably warm weather in recent weeks has hindered snowmaking capabilities and Mother Nature has not allowed us to create the quality snow product that we’re dedicated to providing for our guests. With a more favorable weather outlook for the end of this week and early next week we are targeting Friday, Nov. 11 for Keystone’s opening.
