Late May Tioga Pass updateMay 25th, 2011 by Elin, Communications Coordinator
Plowing continues on Highway 120 as crews work to get the road through Yosemite National Park open. Rumor has it that plows working on the eastern entrance to Yosemite have reached Tuolumne Meadows by now, working to remove between three and four feet of snow off the road. The plows also typically encounter downed trees, boulders in the road, and avalanche conditions.
Here at the Mono Lake Committee we have heard that Tioga Pass will probably not be open until the end of June, so be sure to check road conditions before you drive across the Sierra Nevada this spring. You can see progress here at the park’s plowing update page.
