Current updates of Ouray County High County Roads

Recent snows have made travel more hazardous in our High Country. Please remember that conditions on these four-wheel-drive roads are highly variable; weather at high elevations changes rapidly. You may encounter snow and ice on our High Country roads, and they will not be plowed again until next Spring. Please check weather conditions before you head out. Stuck or stranded vehicles may not be recoverable for some time – drive at your own risk. Be sure your vehicle is properly equipped in case of changes in weather and if you get stranded.
