You can't paste the map. Just grab the link to the image and insert it with the button (above the edit box).

Tioga Road: Yesterday, crews plowed the Big Oak Flat Road due to new snowfall, plowed 18-20 inches of new snow on the Tioga Road, then plowed 0.4 miles from previous point (now at Porcupine Summit). Snow depth is 11 feet.

Additionally, Mono County Public Works and Mammoth Mountain crews have begun plowing from the east side and are now at Mono/Parker Pass Trailhead.

Tioga Road: Yesterday, crews plowed to Porcupine Creek Trailhead (two miles from previous point).

Additionally, Mono County Public Works and Mammoth Mountain crews have begun plowing from the east side and are now at Mono/Parker Pass Trailhead.

Glacier Point Road: The road has been plowed, but additional work is required before the road can open. (See photos below the map.) There is no estimated opening date. (The road usually opens by the end of May.)

I sometimes think it would be neat if the Park Service could keep Glacier Point Road plowed up through Washburn Point. It would be nice to have easy access to that vista point in the winter.
