ROLLINS PASS ROAD STATUS | CORONA PASS ROAD STATUS
By far, our most popular and most accessed resource with thousands and thousands of views each year! The latest information about the Rollins Pass Road Status and road conditions are provided on this page—based on data aggregated from crowd-sourced information available and provided to Preserve Rollins Pass. Avalanche forecast data is provided courtesy of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC). This page is updated every week of the year and quite often, daily.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our second-most popular resource: your most frequently asked questions about Rollins Pass, the Moffat Tunnel, and much more are answered here by the authors! This page is updated frequently with new questions and answers.
ROLLINS PASS WEATHER
Rollins Pass weather, like many places in Colorado, changes constantly. Add to this, the complexity that Rollins Pass has no infrastructure: no electricity, no webcams, no AWOS sites, and no SNOTEL sites. However, reasonable guesses at the weather and conditions on Rollins Pass can be ascertained from nearby AWOS and SNOTEL sites as well as nearby webcams from Winter Park Resort, Berthoud Pass, Eldora, atop Dakota Hill near Rollinsville, and Nederland. We’ll walk you through how to interpret the data below to make reasonable guesses as to how much snow you can expect on either side of Rollins Pass as well as what the current weather might look like.
ROLLINS PASS MAPS
Satellite maps, wilderness maps, as well as USFS Motor Vehicle Use Maps for both sides of Rollins Pass (Corona Pass) are provided to inform the public.
LEAVE NO TRACE
Leave no trace, don’t pocket the past, and take care of the pass for the future.
