    When Does The Whole Enchilada Open?

    I am trying to coordinate a couple of groups meeting in Moab in May 2012. Last year when we were there April 30-May 1 the shuttles said they needed a few more weeks and the Whole Enchilada would be open.

    I have heard many others say that it isn't open till June or July. What's typical? Thanks for your help in advance. Mark

    It opens when the snow melts. Depends on the year obviously, but sometimes it's not clear until late June/early July I think..... but then the lower parts are getting pretty hot.

    September-early October is primo TWE time.

    We've done a couple of late fall trips in the 3rd weekend of October. The 1st time we were skunked and could only get to UPS/LPS. This year we got as far as Hazard. I think we could've gotten Burro Pass as well but we were shuttling ourselves in a large RV and didn't want to drive the extra 40 minutes on those roads.

    We went and tried to do the whole enchilada around the 4th of July this last summer and we could only start at Hazard county trailhead because the snow still hadn't melted. I would say July through October are the best times.
