    Default The wait goes on.

    It remains closed for now Craig, and with no date given for a predicted opening on yesterdays update from the National park. The road and utility services at Tuolumne meadows are not ready for visitors.

    Dave.

    Default New Prognostication: June 23rd

    And my last prognostication was June 7th. So, I guess, my latest guess will be June 23rd at 8 am.

    Default Scheduled to open!

    The Yosemite NPS has announced the Tioga pass is scheduled to open on Monday 10th June at 7am. The weather looks settled right through next week, so there is no good reason this won't happen.

    As always, we will wait for the Official verdict.

    Dave (Who couldn't decide between Monday the 3rd and 10th and opted for the 3rd!!) Doh!

    Oooh I'm not far off of that with my guess but I can see another couple of entries that are closer to the estimated opening time. Wonder what the official opening time will be!!

    Default Open.

    Tioga pass is shown as open on Yosemite's Road status page, so it looks as though it went to plan.

    We shall wait for the official announcement as always and double check entries, but it's looking as though member tseeb may be the DcTpp (Darn close Tioga pass prognosticator

    Sonora Pass opened one day too late for me and Tioga one day too early. I returned to the Bay Area from Mammoth on May 15th after skiing two days there and May 13 at Palisades on my way to Mammoth. I checked with Caltrans staff at maintenance facility at 395/108 about 3 pm to make sure it was not opening that afternoon. It would have saved me about 50 miles and 35 minutes. Instead I went home via Gardnerville, NV where gas is much cheaper than in CA, and took 88 past KIrkwood. Will post a photo or two someday.

    I didn’t think Tioga would open on a Monday, but saw it was scheduled to when at party at friend’s house. I had checked after he told me his plans to spend a night this week in his RV in Yosemite Valley, then by Mono Lake the following night which requires a long drive without Tioga.

    It was an unusual year for snowfall with very little snow until January, then a lot of snow through March, then record snow on May 6 when Palisades reported 26” and long lines. The Central Sierra Snow Lab said it was the biggest one day snowfall of the year at their location. It was also a little unusual that Park Service gave so many details on what was required besides clearing road to open Tioga.

    Default Almost, almost

    Tony, congrats on almost being named as the DcTpp. Hopefully, Sheriff Dave will have the final word soon.

    Default Time to call it

    Yosemite NP have still not updated their 'Opening and closing' page which is our 'go to' for Official confirmation. However, there is nothing to suggest it didn't open as scheduled, so I think it's time to officially declare that member tseeb is the new DcTPP (Darn close Tioga Pass Prognosticator) champion for the 2024 Opening contest. Congratulations!

    tseeb predicted the pass would open on June 11th at Noon. The actual opening for 2024 was June10th at 7am. (Close, but no cigar!)

    So we have a new DcTPP, and Mark Sedenquist holds onto his crown as TPPC (Tioga Pass Prognosticator Champion) once again!!

    Watch out for the Winter closing 2024 Contest.

    Dave
