6/27/20 w/JKU 33s/4in - snow thru a few parts. One very large drift we had the winch a Ford F-150 trough. We didn’t have any issues getting to the peak and back. The back side of the pass (Red Cone) is not passable do to snow cover.

JKUR running 35’s zero issues. It is narrow in spots but very pretty! Handcart Gulch down into Park County is a bit sketchy as it is very narrow shelf road down from Webster. Sign even says no full size vehicles they mean it!

I really enjoy Webster pass. it can be impassable early in the spring (if you are wanting to god down the other side) so keep this in mind. The switch backs on the pass can be nerve wracking esp if you don't like shelf roads, they tend to be washed out, so know where your tires actually are. Views at the top are worth it IMO.

Montezuma to Webster Pass July 15th 2017. Beautiful drive with absolutely stunning scenery as you transition from forest to above tree line. Easy off roading with clearance only needed for a creek crossing (which was running close to 2ft deep when we went). Webster was snowed in on south side so made it to the pass and then turned around and headed back down. The views from Webster pass are awesome. Used 4wd for the switchbacks going up to Webster for a bit of traction on the corners and 4wd low coming down out of general laziness!

Scenery was very good to great. Some technical but easy. A little rocky but not bad. We are looking very forward to doing Red Cone and Radical pass next.
