Independence Pass is set to open next week, but CDOT still has some work to do before cars are safe to take the scenic route to Aspen for the summer. 

News 5 photographer A.J. Vega tagged along with crews who dropped explosives to trigger avalanches along the mountain pass, which was buried under feet of snow this winter.
