Is the current snow depth above normal for this time of year? My concern is the roads in the higher elevations may not be open by June 12th when I visit the Park.

Thanks

Tuolumnee (Tioga Road) is 150% of normal, so will open late. Peregoy Meadows (Glacier Point Road) is 101% of normal. So Glacier Point should be open by mid-June. By the last half of May the sun is intense enough to melt several inches a day.
