Interesting range of dates, from 29 April to 01 July.

I remember being there on 14 June 1995, and it was still closed. We learned that a snow-removal person had been killed two days earlier in an avalanche (or similar) while driving heavy equipment, but now I can't find any info on the Internet regarding this.

Here's an LA Times article about the incident:
http://articles.latimes.com/1995-06-15/ ... ss-opening

And, from the Yosemite website:

"The Barry Hance Memorial Award was established in honor of the Yosemite National Park maintenance worker killed in an avalanche while plowing the Tioga Pass Road on June 13, 1995. The award is designed to celebrate Yosemite employees that demonstrate exceptional ethics, attitude, and concern for their fellow employees and the park. "

Storm this weekend. Hard to say. At this rate I'm going with Dave K. In '98 after the big el nino that year the pass didn't open until 4th of July weekend when the high country was still deep in white. And they did it partly because of holiday pressure. This el nino hasn't been nearly as strong. Hope I'm wrong!

With the budget constraints that CalTrans is dealing with, they may not have the overtime, extra help and spare parts to open the pass as early as the'yd like...drum roll please.........................................................................................................June 22.
