Best guess for Tioga Pass opening?

Post by markskor » Wed Apr 24, 2019 10:01 am

As it is almost that time, (especially for me as it concerns a summer job up at the TM store)...
When do you reckon they will officially open up the pass over 120, IE Tioga Pass?
You only get one stab at it...
I'm thinking June 15th.
Winner gets something from my sketchbook.

My guess is June 22nd. Mainly because it works out well for a trip I have planned :)

I guess Thursday, June 27. In 2017 (similar snowpack), it opened on Thursday, June 29.

Since Rightstar already did my date of Friday, June 14, (they seem to like Fridays for the weekend), and Mark took the 15th, I'll go with Thursday, June 13.
