Overall, the Tuolumne drainage is 178% of average water content and the Merced Drainage is 172% of average. These results are similar to 1995; which is generally considered to be the third or fourth largest snowpack on record. Keep in mind that opening dates of park facilities, including the Tioga Road, are generally more dependent on April and May temperatures than on the April 1 snowpack.
