  • Tioga Road 除雪データ


    Tioga Road 開通・閉鎖日
    Ski Conditions and Weather: It has been a very warm and dry week here at Tuolumne Meadows. Our afternoon highs the past three days have been in the low to mid sixties, with overnight lows barely reaching the teens. We have had no new snow, and our base is down to only 31 inches of snow. This is the shallowest snowpack in nearly 20 years here at Tuolumne Meadows; not since 1988, when there was only 29 inches of settled snow, has there been less snow on the ground on this date. There are more and more spots of open water along the Tuolumne River, and it definitely feels like spring. Ski touring is still very good however, with a nice firm base in most places making travel very easy for the most part. The weather forecast shows the warm and dry weather to continue for at least the next week.

  • ブッシュ大統領、国立公園への予算増強


    President Bush Proposes Budget Increase for National Parks
    In his proposed budget last week, President Bush set aside $2.4 billion to help reverse chronic funding shortages in national parks. The money, a combination of public and private funds, would pay for a much needed increase in seasonal rangers and maintenance and construction. As part of this proposal, Yosemite could see as much as a 13% increase in funding over its 2006 budget.
