I'll go with June 21st even though Mike already took the date.
I hope the snowcat they sent up was carrying a copious amount of charcoal dust to spread on the snow covering the road.

Plows are plowing in 8 feet of snow one mile west of White Wolf (near Siesta Lake).

Snowpack in the Tuolumne River basin was at 149% of average this year as of May 1. View a list of previous opening dates. There is no estimated date for opening.

Are we talking plowed through, or open? Open to cyclists? Motors?

Wildhiker took my date...
My guess: Open to cyclists on Thursday 27 June. Open to vehicles on June 28.

Couldn't you just strap on the skiis, the shovel and be there in like 14 hrs and clean down the floor of your tent and the store? :D
