Status & Weather 



Current Road Status


We are open to the summit from 8am - 4pm for all regularly allowed vehicles, weather permitting. Guided Tours operate 8:30am-4:00pm.


We are now closed to motorcycles for the remainder of the season due to the sand on the pavement used during icing events this week.


We will close for the 2018 season on October 21st unless the weather forces us to close earlier.
