West Maroon Pass to Crested Butte hike next Wednesday

Has anyone done this hike recently? I understand the road at Shofield Pass is closed so we need to hike an additional 2 miles to where our pick up can drive to meet us. Is this correct? Also, I booked lodging in Carbondale the night before because Aspen availability was limited and too expensive. Does anyone know if there is lodging closer than Carbondale that I might explore? Thx so much.

Try Tyrollean Lodge in Aspen for the town's inexpensive alternative. Here's the latest info that I can find:

I don't know what time cousins started but their taking 9 hours I'm sure it was early. Get to your pickup before dark but take headlamps just in case. Also extra bars and adequate water. Your pickup will be able to drive right up to the barrier on Gothic road. Enjoy.

Report back on your trip so other first timers will have a sense of what the trip was like for you. Thanks.

Paradise Divide is open, but Gothic only until 2 miles before, as you suggest.
