I noticed this morning the Yosemite National Park website says the Tioga Road is now plowed from end to end. The road is open to bicycle traffic from Crane Flat to the Yosemite Creek bridge. They continue to work plowing the entire width of the road and making necessary repairs. No opening date is set, but it sounds like they have made excellent progress despite the crappy weather. I'm hoping June 10th.

The Tioga Road has been partly plowed for its entire length. Now, road crews are working to remove snow from the entire width of the road and plow turnouts and side roads. In addition, road crews will be removing rockslides and redirecting snowmelt across the road to reduce icy road conditions. Finally, Olmsted Point is still unsafe due to avalanche danger.

The Tioga Road is now open to bicycles from Crane Flat to Yosemite Creek Bridge. Please watch out for debris on the road and road crew traffic. If conditions allow, we will extend the bicycle zone farther east prior to the opening.

Drove up to N Lake today. The road is open to the pack station/hikers' parking.

Onion valley is clear (I think most southern/mid sierra TH roads must be after this hot weekend)
