Guardsman Pass Open For The Season From Park City To Midway

Utah Open Lands

Mountain roads reopening is an indicator that the winter season is over. The locked gates to Guardsman Pass, from both Park City and Midway, are now open. 

Guardsman Pass usually opens for the season in late May or June. But with a lighter than usual snowfall, the road opened Monday morning, according to the Utah Department of Transportation. 

Some people had access to the road a day early though. Park City Police Department reported the gate lock from the Park City side went missing on Sunday - giving drivers the ability to make it through the Park City gate but the gate at Y headed to Midway, was still locked until Monday morning. 

The road is now open from Park City to Pine Junction. Guardsman Pass to Big Cottonwood Canyon will remain closed until UDOT crews are able to clear the road. UDOT is estimating the road will be fully open by Memorial Day weekend.
