Never skied it, but i plan to next week some time. I found this on Lou Dawsons blog post about the pass, http://www.backcountryskiingco.com/independence-pass/independence-intro.html
pretty comprehensive intro. Go to the 'routes' drop down menu and you can pick the different sections of the pass that are usually skied. Be safe, try to make some friends and have them show you around.
