    TUOLUMNE MEADOWS WINTER CONDITIONS UPDATE
    April 11, 2007
    Weather: (April 4- April 10)
    High temp: 59° (April 4)
    Low temp: 17° (April 10)
    New Snow: 0”
    Total settled snow depth: 0”
    Ski Conditions and Weather: The ski season is rapidly drawing to a close here at Tuolumne. Warm afternoon temperatures, lots of sun, and no new snow have combined to melt all the snow around the ranger station where we traditionally measure our snowpack. Therefore, the “base” here at Tuolumne is officially 0 inches. There is, however, still snow in many places such as the main portion of Tuolumne Meadows, the slopes and bowls near Elizabeth Lake, and the upper reaches of Lyell Canyon. All the snow bridges are gone in most places, so river and creek crossings are a problem unless you either use a footbridge or want to get wet. In many places you have to take your skis off to bypass areas of bare ground and then put them back on once you reach snow again. Highway 120 above the road closure gate outside of Lee Vining has been plowed to Tioga Pass, so skiers entering from the east side will have 8 miles of bare pavement to either walk or bicycle prior to reaching the snow. The gate at the bottom of the hill will probably not open until April 27, just in time for fishing season. Farther west along highway 120, you will have to walk the last two miles or so to Tuolumne Meadows, as the road has completely melted out. Skiers entering from the west side should be aware that the park begins their snow plowing operations from Crane Flat on April 16, so the snow line on the west end of highway 120 will be changing on a daily basis, and you may have to bypass snow removal equipment if you ski in on a weekday.

    TMの状況
    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.

    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.

  • 積雪量

    投稿グループ

    2月1日のTM付近での積雪量は、平均の43%との事です。今年は(現時点では)かなりドライな冬のようです。
    Park Rangers recently completed the February 1 snow surveys. Overall, the Tuolumne drainage has 43% of average water content while the Merced drainage has 41% of average. Depths ranged from 40 inches of snow at Grace Meadow (14 inches of water) to 17 inches of snow at Tuolumne Meadows (5 inches of water). This is the driest February 1 survey since the early 1990s. (M. Fincher – 2/5/07)
