Tioga Pass on April 20, 2012

As of Friday, April 20 there is no official date on when Tioga Pass will open, and there is no update on where the park crew is along the road. However, CalTrans has cleared all the way to the Tioga Pass gate, and there is 3–4 feet of snow along the road depending on where and how you measure. Much of the snow is from the recent, significant storm of April 12–13. We have not heard when the lower gate will be open, but today I saw several groups of skiers making the trek by foot up and down the road. The recent stretch of warm temperatures brings a unique Tioga Road experience: tree rrogs singing in a ditch just below the blue slide.

    Bartshe, it looks like the Park Service posted an update today: They have reached Yosemite Creek from the west.

    Looks like the plows have made their way to Olmsted Point! Hopefully this storm doesn’t slow them down too much…
