Roads still not open Mammoth Lakes past Twin but expect any day.
Today walked up to Horseshoe and found a new warning sign.
Especially worried about the last avoid statement - whatever it means?

Looks like Tioga Rd may be opening soon.

From today's Yosemite Daily Report:

Administrative Traffic on the Tioga Road
The Tioga Road corridor will be open Wednesday April 30, 2014 at 0600 hours for Administrative Travel. Administrative Travel is defined as mission critical and for valid work purposes only. There are no avalanche requirements due to extremely low or non-existent snow levels, therefore the process of calling in and out to dispatch for access will be suspended. Please remain vigilant for continuing road work which includes large slow moving machinery and workers along the roadway, therefore patience and slow speed is required. Both the Crane Flat and Tioga Pass gate are equipped with BF-6 locks for access. Please ensure they remain locked after access to prevent non-administrative traffic through

Mark,

when the mountain blows, it's gonna leave a mark.

and b_k, open doesn't mean hikeable yet. They still have to clear the side streets, and you're gonna still post-hole around memorial day. Still agree with Mav's estimate.

b_k, Welcome to the HST.
