    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...
  7. 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.
  9. 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...
  10. 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)....
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  15. 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....
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...

    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...

    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...
  23. 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...

    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...
  25. 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...
