Crossing Tioga, Sonora, or Ebbetts Passes This Summer?
« on: May 24, 2023, 11:16:40 am »
Here's a recent National Park Service video of plowing operations.
As of May 21, they were 15 miles  west of Crane Flats with 25 miles still to go.
Tioga Pass is not likely to open until mid-July.
Sonora Pass and Ebbetts Pass are cleared by Caltrans.
They usually open for Memorial Day - but this year will probably be mid to late June.

Keep this in mind if you plan to do the Sierra Cascades route.
Of if you have planned to hit Yosemite and Tioga Pass on a west-to-east ride.
The Western Express uses Carson Pass further north which is plowed all winter.
(But it also had a record number of closure days this winter.)
