August 12 is the new firm opening date for Cottonwood Pass – at least on the Gunnison side. The pass had been set to open June 22 but has been pushed back by County Commissioners concerned with the remaining high level of snowpack in the area. County Commissioner Roland Mason told the Salida Mountain Mail that Aug. 12 is a firm opening date, though construction delays may still occur once it’s open.
