But I am so excited for summer skiing this year! I'm already hoping to camp memorial weekend so I can ski, fish and hike 8-) 8-)

No it's not too early. I prefer spring/summer skiing so bring it on!! A trifecta is in order! :)

I can't imagine what would happen if we get a really hot and early summer. :o :shock:

Last year it was cool to see both skier/boarders and mtn bikers riding the gondola to the top in July. Not sure they'll have any bike runs open off the top in July this year.

I've been wondering how hard it will be clearing both the road to Red's Meadow and the Tioga Pass this year.

For reference, in 1983 Tioga Passed opened on June 30th. I was up there over the 4th of July weekend that year and there was probably 4 feet of snow around Tuolumne Meadows and it was snowing. Good times.

I've already scrapped plans to do a Mammoth/Yosemite combo trip because checking back on big snow years they never seem to clear Tioga until mid June.

But what about the road to Reds Meadows?

Tioga may not even be cleared until early July at this point!

There's still 18' of snow on the Reds Meadow valley floor according to a friend of mine who was just down there. It's going to be a while. :P
