Looks like confirmation that Tioga Road will open Thursday or (more likely?) Friday, Sonora Pass scheduled for Friday too:

This looks like the earliest in 25 years. The plowing website says it opened on 2 May in 1987. The next nearest date is May 11, 2007. I've got a friend from out here in the east who is contemplating the Rae Lakes Loop in June; he might actually be able to do it!
