      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Tioga Road

Recommended Posts

Just checked the NPS website, and they are

anticipating a May 14 road opening for both

Tioga & Glacier Point roads.

 

Too bad I have to be in San Diego for the next three

weeks. After that Tuolumne is on!

Anyone coming down this way in June??

Sure is. It's been Memorial Day each of the last 2 years. There was still some decent snow cover up Hiway 4 yesterday. Was told there's still another month of backcountry skiing left. It's been quite warm lately though melting quick. Dana is a fun peak.

Tioga opened on Friday the 14th. I was up there on Sunday and it looked like they could have opened it a month earlier. There's very little snow but there were backcountry skiers lining the road- inside and outside the park entrance. There were tons of tracks above Ellery. I saw cars parked at the Westcrack parking lot. Bouldering at the lake was dry and GOOD. Great time to be up there except that a storm seems to be heading in right now.

I drove thru on Sunday as well on the way back from San Fran. They had those avalanche warning signs up still, but I agree, the snow was fairly sparse.

Damn its beautiful up there, we're really lucky to have such beautiful country at our fingers. Drove south through Owens Valley. Same thing, just stunning country. I'm pumped for the Palisades on Memorial Day weekend.
