Snow and Tioga Pass

Yesterday I checked the camera located at Tioga Pass.


It looked like the snow was up to the roof level of the Tioga Pass entrance booth. I was trying to figure out really how deep the snow is? I am 6 feet tall and would not hit the bottom of the roof, so I am figuring the depth at 6.5 feet.+ ??? Anyone else have a guess? It is really piling up at the high elevation.

More snow is on the way, so an early opening does not look possible at this point.

That's at 10,000 feet and they don't plow the road. I'd guess 7 to 8 feet snow depth depending where on the roof the snow is up to.

There's plenty of time before the end of May to see if they can get it open for the season by Memorial Day.

according to another website that measures the snow and water contecnt etc. it says they have 116 inches or 9.6 feet. I hope we get more snow! We need the water so badly.

Well, isn't that a lovely picture. Perfect blue skies. I think the photo is showing some drifting in there too and the hill/wall to the right might cause some snow build up, but I am guestimating in the 9-10 foot range...and more to follow!
