Hwy 120 - Tioga Pass closed (Yosemite NP)

A dear friend just brought my tires up from Bishop and the sign said Tioga closed. Better call before the attempt.

It was closed yesterday, open this afternoon, then closed again tonight.

Hopefully open this Saturday!? (I'm headed over the mountains for my last ride of the season.

THFFFFT! You can come shovel my snow while I go ride! Just rented storage in Sacramento to keep my bike for the winter so I can ride.

This time of year conditions are changeable. Watch for sand on the roads and don't forget those nasty pine needles either! Still another month of good riding up here though.

Re: Hwy 120 - Tioga Pass closed (Yosemite NP)

I got to ride Tioga three times this year, once two up. Saw a bear.
They were filming a movie at Hetch Hetchie, but I couldn't find out the name. That place would be great for shooting an action/chase scene, like where the hero gets chased down the stairs in the front of the dam and gets cornered and then has to jump or something.

Re: Hwy 120 - Tioga Pass closed (Yosemite NP)

It was closed Thursday night, and must have opened long before I got there at 10:30 am because there were tons of people already up there. The roads were dry when I went thru, so it surprises me that they closed it again lastnight. Either way, one of the rangers told me they only closed it until any surface melted away, and that doesn't take long once the sun comes up, so I'm betting it'll be open by the time you get out there.
