Yosemite Reopens Some Areas After Heavy Snow (2/7/2019)
Story by Woodall's Campground Management
Some of the roads in California's Yosemite National Park closed by the recent snowstorm were reopened Wednesday (Feb. 6) afternoon, park officials announced, according to the Sierra Star.
Wawona Road (Highway 41), El Portal Road (Highway 140) and Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120) were all reopened Wednesday at noon. Snow chains are required along the newly reopened roads.
Due to the heavy snowfall and downed trees along many of its roads, the park closed down all of its roads on Tuesday.
The National Weather Service reported areas in and around Yosemite such as Fish Camp, the Mariposa Grove and the Tuolumne Meadows received about three feet of snow.
Those traveling from Fresno to Yosemite along Highway 41 are required to drive with snow chains beginning two miles north of Big Cedar Springs and into the park.
Highway 140 lifted its snow chain requirement on Wednesday.
Some areas within the park remained closed, including Badger Pass Road, Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area, all campgrounds, and the Mariposa and Merced Groves of Giant Sequoias.
