  1. Sticky: Poll: Would they just open it for Monday and close it...

    Would they just open it for Monday and close it on Tuesday? Does not seem very likely.

    While it seems like storm is slightly delayed, current predictions include 8-12" for Mammoth on Tues. night....
  2. Sticky: Poll: Dave, Thanks for you appreciation of my efforts. ...

    Dave, Thanks for you appreciation of my efforts.

    This week's storm went further N than predicted - we even had sprinkles overnight Tues in San Jose. Snowfall was supposed to be concentrated...
  3. Sticky: Poll: A few more pictures from driving over Tioga Pass on Nov. 14

    A couple of more from Olmstead Point. First is the view to E featuring Tenaya Lake and Mt Conness. Second is Clouds Rest, the highest point visible from Yosemite Valley, and a long hike that ends in...
  4. Sticky: Poll: I drove W over Tioga Pass on Thurs, Nov 14. I...

    I drove W over Tioga Pass on Thurs, Nov 14. I think my original guess of Nov. 13 was based on that would be the day I'd need Tioga to be open to get to Mammoth, which opened the previous Saturday on...
  5. Sticky: Poll: Not sure if Fall/Winter closing rules are the...

    Not sure if Fall/Winter closing rules are the same as Spring/Summer opening rules when it seemed like people were able to put in a new entry as long as it was done 15 days or more in advance.

    Even...
  6. Sticky: Poll: Squaw Valley said they had 2" of snow at 8200' on...

    Squaw Valley said they had 2" of snow at 8200' on Mon 9/14. We had a 1 hr 20 minute of delays about 10 miles W of Donner Summit (well below where any snow fell) in early PM. It sounded like two semis...
  7. Sticky: Poll: I was going to pick 11/13, but don't want to be...

    I was going to pick 11/13, but don't want to be so close to Mark so my pick is 11/12 at 9 AM.

    I saw some snow mixed in the precipitation at about 6,000' in Truckee on Mon 9/14 and Mammoth had some...
  8. Poll: Thanks for the hat. I wore it today (and other...

    Thanks for the hat. I wore it today (and other days).

    It may be time to open the Fall/Winter 2019 closing contest as it snowed at about 6000' around Truckee on Monday 9/16 and may have snowed on...
  9. Poll: Do I still win anything if I get NPS to change...

    Do I still win anything if I get NPS to change the Spring (really was Summer) 2019 opening date when it closes in Fall/Winter?

    I contacted NPS to ask them to add something to go with the asterisk...
  10. Poll: I only stopped at the top of the pass for about...

    I only stopped at the top of the pass for about 10 minutes. While there, I talked to a guy from Sacramento who had ridden his (< $1,000 and without disc brakes) bike up from 395 and was getting his...
  11. Poll: A correction to my previous post on Sonora Pass...

    A correction to my previous post on Sonora Pass is that the grade on the W side at the top is 26 percent. I think you go from 7,000 to 8,000 feet in 3 miles, then from 8,000 to 9,000 in two more...
  12. Poll: Since there is $100 to me riding on it, I’ll also...

    Since there is $100 to me riding on it, I’ll also have to question when Tioga opened. I guess I have to accept what is posted at https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/seasonal.htm which seems like...
  13. Poll: Does being open two hours a day count? Seems like...

    Does being open two hours a day count? Seems like nobody has the right date and I was week off (guessing two months in advance). I'm blaming it on record snow in May.

    "Yosemite’s Tioga Road will...
  14. Poll: While I think it will open earlier, the earliest...

    While I think it will open earlier, the earliest I can select today is July 1 at 8:30 AM so that is my new guess.
  15. Poll: Since both Ebbetts and Sonora Passes opened on...

    Since both Ebbetts and Sonora Passes opened on 5/30, I compared when they opened vs. Tioga since winter of 2011/11.

    For the two most recent winters with high snowfall (2010/11 and 2016/17),...
  16. Poll: Sonora (CA-108) and Ebbetts (CA-4) Passes both...

    Sonora (CA-108) and Ebbetts (CA-4) Passes both opened today. When I have time, I'll have to see how much further behind Tioga usually opens. For some details on the efforts to open Ebbetts, see...
  17. Poll: Friday June 14 at 8 AM

    Friday June 14 at 8 AM
  18. Poll: Before it gets too far into November, I'm putting...

    Before it gets too far into November, I'm putting in my WAG: Wednesday, November 28 at 2 PM
  19. Poll: I found a few more pictures from the East side of...

    I found a few more pictures from the East side of Tioga Pass to share. First one is going up the pass at about 8K' level with another 2K' to go.
    4780
    Ellery Lake and 13,061' Mt Dana which some...
  20. Poll: A couple of more pictures from Olmstead Point....

    A couple of more pictures from Olmstead Point. One is of some people hiking on the granite near the somewhat busy, but not nearly full, parking area. There is a lot of granite across the highway with...
  21. Poll: I'm continuing in another post as I ran into the...

    I'm continuing in another post as I ran into the five picture limit. I stopped at Tenaya Lake and took the first picture with my phone that ran out space so the next and rest of the pictures are from...
  22. Poll: Driving Tioga Pass on Tuesday, 5/22/2018 - the day after it opened

    I drove Tioga Pass and Highway 120 through Yosemite yesterday and will mostly let the pictures tell the story. I skied at Mammoth from 7:40 to about 11:45 with a break around 9 to sit out some very...
  23. Poll: I'll go with the official time as it gets me...

    I'll go with the official time as it gets me within 24 hours. But, and as a new guy I'm not trying to start a fight with the Sheriff, I think it opened earlier. I left So Tahoe well before 5 AM and...
  24. Poll: If they open it on schedule at 9 AM on May 21, it...

    If they open it on schedule at 9 AM on May 21, it looks like I'll win the dcTPP (Darn Close -- Tioga Pass Prognosticator) as I'm less than 24 hours off.

    My phone predicts snow in Mammoth on...
  25. Poll: May 22 at 8:30 AM - I think May 17 or 18 are also...

    May 22 at 8:30 AM - I think May 17 or 18 are also likely, but it always seems to open a day or two too late for me to use it on my return from Mammoth to the Bay Area.
