Coverage on the Tioga Road is good from the park boundary at Tioga Pass westward; however, Caltrans has started clearing the snow on the eastside of Tioga Pass. At last report they were approaching Saddlebag Lake Road.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

Glacier point road open for bicycles only today. Usually that means they have it almost all plowed but still have cleanup and repairs to do.
