Yosemite, CA — Some high country snow over the past week is not hindering Yosemite National Park’s plan to open Tioga Pass this weekend.
Park Ranger Kari Cobb says the highest elevations received a couple inches of snow over the past week, but it has been melting very quickly. Tioga Pass will open for the season at noon on Saturday. There may still be some snow and ice along some of the high country trails. All campgrounds along Tioga Pass will remain closed for the time being, as well as commercial services like the gas station, store and village grille. Those facilities could be open sometime within the next few weeks.
