    Default Open for the time being.

    It's looking lovely in Yosemite right now with possible snow showers forecast for Tuesday into Wednesday and although it doesn't look to be anything too significant, the temperatures take a dive so I wonder if ice may become a problem.

    Default Closed for now.

    As I suspected, both the Tioga Pass and Glacier point road have been closed due to icy conditions. Snow showers are forecast from Saturday right through to Monday so it's possible it won't open before the weekend. Is that it for the season ? We will have to wait and see.

    Just in case it's not closed yet, I'll get my guess in for Dec. 5th at 10am.

    Friends of mine are reporting that the Valley weather in Yosemite was really nice yesterday. Still waiting for a further report from them.

    Default Weekend snow.

    It looks as though the first significant snow is going to fall over this coming weekend. Up on the high ground could see up to 18inches of fresh snow and even Yosemite valley will not escape entirely with 8 inches of new snow accumulation a possibility.

    It certainly looks like the high country of the Sierras must already be closed to vehicular traffic...

    Lots of chain controls too.

  9. Default Official date?

    The YNP website now states that road is closed for the season (rather than temporarily closed due to snow and ice). Don't know when status was changed since haven't checked for awhile.

    Default It's Official. New Dctpp announced !

    Well spotted Jessica, although I had checked very recently and there had been no official notification at that time so you were quick off the mark. The official closing date was announced as being November 16th and although there is no official time I am aware they closed it late afternoon in preparation for bad conditions overnight on that day.

    We do not have a winner this year with the correct date, but we do have a new DCTPP champ [Darn close Tioga Pass Prognosticator] who is travelingman who predicted it would close on November 17th @ 11:45am way back when the contest started in August.

    Congratulations travelingman (And commiserations, you were so close to nailing it ! )

    Dave.
