Today the pass is the location of the Moffat Tunnel, a passage through the Continental Divide in north-central Colorado which took 48 months to bore. The second offering is a silent film shot on Rollins Pass in 1922.

'White Desert,' released in 1925, is a melodrama starring Claire Windsor and Pat O'Malley. Saturday, November 3

Calling all railroad enthusiasts!

Jason LaBelle, Ph.D., and Pete Seel, Ph.D., with the Department of Journalism and Technical Communication, will debut their documentary film about the prehistory and history of the Rollins Pass.

Stone and Steel at the Top of the World (2012) is about the ancient hunters of Rollins Pass, the spectacular Moffat Road railway, and the Pass today. A must-see mix of history, archaeology, railroads, recreation, and cultural preservation.

The White Desert

Reginald Barker’s silent film classic, The White Desert, is a tale of an avalanche and the crossing of the Great Divide in a steam locomotive in the dead of winter. Don’t miss the live piano accompaniment by Hank Troy!
