Ditto, anyone know if the road opened today? I'm sure there were a bunch of people anxiously awaiting this up there...

I was in the area today and got a good look at the standard North Ridge route. There is some snow up there but not much. The long range forecast looks good. I didn't go to the top of the road so I don't know what conditions are like at the TH.
Yes, it is fully open

I know this is an old thread but since I am looking for info for this coming weekend I came upon it.

So is Tigiwon Road open and drivable to half moon th in a Subaru Forester? How about the south road by HC City? Is that road doable?

This will be our first time in the Holy Cross wildernes. We will be backpacking fall creek trail and wondering which way is best, north or south.

Thanks folks.

Check out the trailhead status. http://14ers.com/php14ers/trailheads2.php?thparm=sw25

To answer your question, your Forester will easily make it.

What could be the possible alternative routes to the top of the Mt. of the Holy Cross for a day trip?
Tigiwon road has been closed and I plan to go this Saturday.

The honest answer is there are no options for HC to be a reasonable day trip right now. Tigiwon is closed and so is the Homestake Road that goes to the French Creek TH which allows you to get to Tigiwon via Holy Cross Ridge and is the only other viable day trip trailhead for HC.
