Early opening for Yosemite's Tioga Pass

May 1, 2014

Another byproduct of a Sierra snowpack that was 30 percent of normal this winter: Caltrans will open the 9,943-foot eastern gateway to Yosemite on California 120 on Friday.


Some years Tioga Pass stays closed as late as July.


A caveat: there's still snow and ice at higher elevations and all campgrounds and commerical services along Tioga Road remain closed.
