Updated Trail Conditions Report on the #RMNP Website Please realize conditions can change quickly - lately the park has had several snowstorms with measurable snow, especially at higher elevations, and some sunshine. BE PREPARED, ALERT & OBSERVANT! ks

Don't know when Trail Ridge Road will open to vehicles. The forecast (elev 11,800 ft) looks flaky ks

REMINDER! Due to late spring snowfall & continuing winter-like conditions at high elevations in #RMNP, Trail Ridge Road’s opening is delayed & will not open to vehicles over the 2019 Memorial Day Holiday.
