Weather closes Park roads for season

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

The Tioga and Glacier Point Roads in Yosemite National Park are now officially closed for the season.

The significant storm systems that passed through the Yosemite Area over the weekend resulted in an estimated five and a half feet of snow accumulation in Tuolumne Meadows.  

Due to this significant storm, the Tioga and Glacier Point Roads in Yosemite National Park are closed for the season. These roads close each fall and remain closed throughout the winter months until weather conditions permit reopening in the spring next year.

Yosemite National Park is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park. All roads within the Park are subject to chain control or temporary closures s due to hazardous driving conditions. All motorists are required to carry tire chains, even if their car is equipped with four-wheel drive, while driving in the park during the winter months.
