Tioga Pass is scheduled to open at 2 PM tomorrow.

Should be a spectacular drive, considering the road-side snow that remains!

For those folks looking for a more direct route from Northern California to Lone Pine/Mt. Whitney please note the following.

From the Sierra Wave.net web site:
"Tioga Road and the east entrance gate to Yosemite National Park remains closed. Park road crews continue to clear snow and make road repairs."

So, I think this announcement means that Hwy 120 is open from Hwy 395 to the gate to Yosemite, but no further.

Yosemite Park web site confirms, Tioga road (Hwy 120) through Yosemite Park is not open, and that "There is no estimated opening date".

You're correct, John. That local press notice is a little misleading for those of us who read too fast.

"120 West" probably means hwy 120 from 140 up to the gate, but the crews are still working on clearing the road from hwy 395 up to the Tioga Pass gate.

Road is clear and open from Hwy 395 to East Gate Entry to Yosemite. Tioga Road in the park is still closed, from from 6.5 east of Crane Flat to Tioga Pass.
