1. Is the road to Cottonwood/Horseshoe Meadows closed for the season?

The site below says the campground is closed, but does that imply the road is also closed to get up there? It says mid-November is "usual" close date, but I know the variability of the weather could mean it could be still open.

2. Same question for the trailhead to Kearsarge Pass

Best thing to do is call the Inyo County Road dept: 760-878-0202

Doug from the WP Store wrote today that the Portal road "Closed" sign is up -- the sign that warns people that they proceed at their own risk. He drove up, and reported some ice and snow up near the Portal.

Horseshoe Meadows is considerably higher -- pretty sure they will have closed it. I don't know about Onion Valley, but it is higher than Whitney Portal, too.

Edit: I see Sierra Angler beat me to the submit button. He's got better info.
