Yosemite Valley, CA– Due to ice and snow, the Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park is closed for the season.
Park officials say the road is currently closed at the Chinquapin and Wawona Road (Highway 41) junction, and will open to Badger Pass once the ski area opens.
Tioga Pass also remains closed at this time due to ice and snow. A winter storm is expected in the Yosemite region Thursday evening and into Friday morning. Over the weekend, the road will be reassessed and there is a slight possibility it will reopen.
Yosemite National Park strongly recommends that all motorists carry tire chains while driving in the park during the fall and winter months. All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions.
Highway 108 Sonora Pass remains closed at Kennedy Meadows and Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass is still closed at the Mt. Reba turnoff.
