I've done Independence as soon as the road opened from the Twin Lakes side in May and it was AWESOME. It's been a few years since I've been up there (Not much snow left by late May tis the reason). Anyone out there know if you can legally take a sled up there when the road closes for the winter?

By the way, Aspen for a late lunch at Coopers Street bar is the cheap way to go after a day of backcountry at Independence. At least it was five years ago or more.

Now that I'm more of an established snowboarder (I surf frozen water much better than when it's moving in a river), I'd like more info on backcountry in the Independence area. :P
