The road to the base of Elderberry Canyon is free of snow.

South Lake is being plowed now.

Sabrina is plowed but not sure if it's open yet.

Keep the updates coming! It is ski season! I guess some people like to fish, and that seems to help the situation 8)

Virginia Lakes is open.

Looked like Lundy is open...

June Lake loop is open.

Whitney portal is open.

Onion Valley is open.

Not sure where the South Lake road is at now...

Hope this helps!

South Lake Road is open to the Summer resident parking

North Lake Road is closed

Sabrina Lake road is closed at Aspendell

Rock Creek is plowed pretty high, not to mosquito flat, but the lake I believe

Hope this helps everyone....snow is melting FAST up high, but this storm should drop some fresh

We spoke to Mono County Road Works today and told the road to Mosquito Flats (Rock Creek) has been plowed and open to the end.

I was just up this past weekend to the Owens Valley. The road to South Lake goes about 100m past Parcher's and stops, but 168 goes all the up to Sabrina, and we had the place to ourselves. Just don't plan on fishing there any time soon.....
