The Mono County Board of Supervisors voted last week to use County employees and equipment to help clear the road up to the gate and into the park from the east side, so I hope they don't wait that long.

Does anyone know how you go about volunteering to go up and help clear the Tioga Road?

Just buy a couple peices of equipment and work at night.

No problem.

the current plan is to begin plowing on May 15.

Yep that's what's happening.

If you want it open earlier start shoveling.

What!!!!

You're all lazy Americans too????

nothin to do in cali but sit around and wait for the pass to open. its like all the skiers rushin out first week of nov jonesing to ruin their skiis. Then in april (corn) they're at a loss of what to do until the pass opens. worse is they're upset at the gubberment for not plowing the road for them. Looks like some of the people posting on this fourm do know how to have some fun without a ski lift or a snow plow-good for you!

That's what I heard, Chris. Joy filled to be living in Tioga Pass one more year. What an incredible place to find your life on the planet.

Cheers to all who make it happen at TPR. :)

Thanks for the heads up, TM - I totally forgot the date. There are still spots open the weekends following Labor Day if anyone is interested. And there was one of those big snowplows pictured above parked at Crane Flat yesterday.

My networks of East Side spies reports of a lot of chatter lately. Virginia Lakes opened today; Tioga might open to the gate on Friday. This intel has not yet been confirmed.

"Tioga might open to the gate" Means the road will just be open another 7.8 miles to the Tioga entrance station. From the eastside.

That would be something if 120 opened all the way across in April.

FWIW.....6" of snow fell here in June Lake today....much more on Tioga.

I'd venture there is a foot at the gate.

Long before there is climbing access, there is ski access to consider.
