  1. Sticky: Poll: Surprisingly to me, 8734' and very narrow Ebbetts...

    Surprisingly to me, 8734' and very narrow Ebbetts Pass and 9624' Sonora Pass both re-opened on Monday 11/15. Sonora Pass is very steep at the top on both sides so it has a lot less miles above 8K...
  2. Sticky: Poll: I don't think Tioga, Sonora or Ebbetts Passes...

    I don't think Tioga, Sonora or Ebbetts Passes will be re-opening before the beginning of Winter. If there is no precipitation between now and then, which us drought-suffering Californians hope is not...
  3. Sticky: Poll: Tioga could be closed for the season as over 3'...

    Tioga could be closed for the season as over 3' of snow is predicted expected on Monday at Mammoth Mountain which is a little South and similar elevation (Main Lodge 9,000', top 11,053'). That would...

    I always try to proofread, but see I had a typo/error in my last sentence that I'm too late to edit.

    I meant to say "If you take US-101 (when going S from Paso Robles to LA), Splash Cafe in Pismo...

    I agree with Michael that Portland to CA on coast in a day would be ambitious. Google maps says Arch Rock is 6 1/2 hrs from Portland if you take I-5 to Corvallis and come out at coast at Newport....
  6. Sticky: Poll: Did your brother run into traffic or weather or...

    Did your brother run into traffic or weather or make a lot of stops? Google Maps says Mammoth to San Jose via Minden is 6 hrs 15 min, less than an hour longer than going through Yosemite (5 hrs 19...
  7. Sticky: Poll: Mark, It will be interesting to hear if your...

    Mark, It will be interesting to hear if your brother got through (or where he went instead) as Tioga was scheduled to "temporarily close on Thursday, October 7, at 5 pm" according to snowbrains link...
  8. Sticky: Poll: My WAG is November 18 at 5 PM although it would...

    My WAG is November 18 at 5 PM although it would be less work for NPS if they just left Tioga closed and nobody here wins. From https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm
    "Tioga Road (Hwy...
  9. Sticky: Poll: Predicting the closing date is tougher than the...

    Predicting the closing date is tougher than the opening and has only one entry so far.

    Tioga will temporarily close tomorrow and not sure if it will re-open or temporarily close again next...

    Maybe I had already used my free pages at Reno Gazette.

    CalTrans District 9 Facebook page says "ATTN DRIVERS: Due to the incoming storm, Caltrans will close Sonora Pass/State Route 108 at NOON on...

    Link provided by Southwest_Dave gave me "This content is only available to subscribers."

    Searching for Tioga on Reno Gazette website gave me some other links including pictures at...

    Sonora Pass was scheduled to open Thursday, May 6 at noon. See https://www.mantecabulletin.com/news/local-news/sonora-pass-reopens-summer-season-travel/ and according to roads.ca.dot.gov is now open....

    Interesting post by couple who have been lucky enough to "serve as the Tuolumne Meadows Winter Rangers" for at least the last couple of years. Here's the link.

    My wife and I spent last week skiing...

    My guess is Friday, May 21 at 8:30 AM, mostly to split the difference between some existing guesses.

    I saw the man-made Firefall once in the mid to late 1960s as my family used to stay with...

    I also received an email about Tioga closing this evening and link at https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm says
    "Tioga Road (continuation of Highway 120 through the park) and...
  16. Sticky: I have not visited this site in a while, but saw...

    I have not visited this site in a while, but saw "Tioga closing this eve through at least Monday" posted in a ski forum and thought I should share it. Good to see that others mentioned that Yosemite...

    Since Dave is the only one with an active vote, I need to decide whether to go ahead of him or behind. I'll take 6/16 at 8:30 PM if that meets the 15 day in advance requirement.
  18. Sticky: Poll: If you have to have a reservation to drive Tioga...

    If you have to have a reservation to drive Tioga Road, is it more open or less open than it was in late June 2019 when it was only open two hours a day? Or is open a yes or no? It sounds like...
  19. Sticky: Poll: The road from Lee Vining to Tioga Pass is open,...

    The road from Lee Vining to Tioga Pass is open, but Yosemite National Park and road through it is still closed. Hope we don't end up with another Sheriff's ruling (or maybe I need to also lobby him)....
  20. Sticky: Poll: Monitor Pass opened yesterday, Friday, May 8....

    Monitor Pass opened yesterday, Friday, May 8. Last year, when Tioga did not open for more than 2 hrs. a day traffic until July 1, Monitor opened on April 26. While story at...
  21. Sticky: Poll: I didn't look for this until last night when it...

    I didn't look for this until last night when it was already too late to jump in between Utahtea and Donna and pick May 21, the Thursday before Memorial Day. While I think the week following Memorial...
  22. Poll: It seems like NPS could have re-opened Tioga...

    It seems like NPS could have re-opened Tioga after the storms that dropped 1" at Mammoth on 11/20 and 11/21, but it's easier/much less work to just keep it closed. Mammoth reported 25" on 11/27 which...

    Am I the only one who noticed that 2019 Spring/Summer opening date at https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/seasonal.htm now says July 1. That was the WAG I entered when original date I entered on...
  24. 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....

    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...
