Independence Pass is Open
For visitors to Aspen and Aspen Square, your options for driving in have doubled with the annual spring opening of Independence Pass. The scenic drive cuts about 30 minutes off the trip from Denver and takes you through magnificent scenery and several different micro-climates on the way into Aspen. There are plenty of places to turn off and photograph the views and if you haven't taken this road less traveled, we encourage you to give it a try. You'll never forget it!
