According to the official Yosemite National Park website (and their Facebook page), the road crews that started plowing the Tioga Road on the west side of the park on Wednesday, April 16th made it to Porcupine Flat. Porcupine Flat is approximately halfway between Crane Flat and Tioga Pass. Additionally, on the eastside, Tioga Road is open to the high gate.

Mono County resident high school seniors who have firm plans to attend a two- or four-year college within a year of graduation qualify.
