I need to drive from the Bay Area to Bishop, Ca, in the first week of March. I understand that the Tioga Pass will still be closed, and that the shortest way is to go North via Sacramento to Tahoe on 50, and South onto 395.
But I'm wondering whether the roads round Tahoe will still be wintry and tough going in early March? Would I be mad to take I-5 south to Baskersfield, then 58 and head North on 395 ? It may be a longer way round, but sounds a lot easier and less stressful. Advice would be very welcome!
