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 the case, a late Dec. or early Jan. re-opening is possible, but not very likely.
I drove from South Lake Tahoe to Mammoth early on Wed. AM as 9-11" of snow fell at Mammoth on Mon. into Tues and I wanted to ski it. Monitor Pass, which is over 8300' and East of the Sierra Crest was closed on my way South, but had re-opened by my return on Thurs. PM. I did not take it, even though it saves a few miles getting to nearly 8600' Carson Pass that I used to return to the Bay Area as I wanted to take advantage of less expensive gas in Gardnerville, NV and last fast food until Jackson. Picture is sunrise over Gardnerville on Wed. AM.
Due to record Northern CA rainfall Oct 24-25 when one location near Sacramento received over 80% of last rainfall year's rain in 24 hrs and a few received more than 50%, Firefall at Yosemite made a rare late Oct. appearance.
