Default red cone?

Does anyone know if Red Cone is still open?
I've got family in town that has never seen the Rocky Mountains and we though Red Cone would be a good one to take them out on close to home with great views if its open.

I can't imagine that there's any/enough snow up there to block it yet. I know there was quite a bit of snow dumped out there earlier this week, but I'm sure it all melted by now. However, that's not to say that someone hasn't locked the gate. You'll just have to go see I guess. Even if it is, you'll probably be able to go up and over Webster Pass.

The gate is the problem, we heard it's closed but nothing confirms that it is in fact closed.

Thanks for the number, unfortunately it was a holiday weekend so no one answered. We choose to give it a shot and hope for the best, and everything we tried was open to include red cone.
Thanks for the help!
