    My local paper and https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm both say 9 AM today.

    1. Mark Sedenquist picked May 1- 10 in poll, but selected May 12 in post. Can he still win without correcting it?

    CA-108 (Sonora), 4 (Ebbetts) & 89 (Monitor) closed today and the first two may stay closed into April or May. I also like Dan's photos and wonder how he is posting them larger than I can or did. (I...

    10" of snow is predicted at Mammoth by Friday this week and more is predicted for next week which probably means Tioga will stayed closed.

    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...
  9. 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...

    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....

    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...

    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...

    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

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

    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 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 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.

    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...
