When Will Tioga Pass Open This Year?

See new update for limited opening on June 21, 2019

Wondering about the opening date for Tioga Pass this summer? There has been slightly less snow than the winters of 2017 and 2011 and the pass opened on June 29th and June 18th those years.

Yosemite National Park reports

Clearing of the Tioga Road normally begins on or about April 15 each year and usually takes between one and two months. Predicting when these roads will open is not possible, even in late spring, because April and May weather significantly affects plowing progress. (April 1 snowpack (water content of the snowpack as a percent of average) for the Tuolumne drainage is listed as a reference.)
