I think it's time to start this thread again :).

So, first one, Whitney Portal Rd: how high up can you get these days?? Probably pretty far from the TH ?

I remember reading something about the portal road but kind wanted to start this thread for all roads on the east side this winter.

I know this has been discussed before but would be cool to have an E Side road conditions page where people could update with the most recent conditions and/or opening rumors (e.g. Tioga). Even cooler would be be one that also had a data feed from CalTrans.

Terrific idea! If I ever get that long awaited funemployment and no one has done it in the meantime, I'm on it!

Sunday the Whitney Portals road was well and truly closed just beyond the "road closed" sign low down. Lots of icy snow; a few vehicles had made it a couple of hundred yards. I snowshoed up to the top parking area; a couple of others had gone in on skis. Lots more snow on the way.
