All roads within Yosemite National Park, including from Yosemite West to Wawona on Highway 41 (Wawona Road), are now open.  The Badger Pass Road and the Badger Pass Ski Area are also open.  

The Hetch Hetchy Road will remain closed through the weekend.

For 24-hour road information and chain restrictions, please call 209-372-0200 for updated information.

Visitors coming into the park over the weekend are urged to drive slowly and with caution.  All vehicles entering the park must carry chains as the weather can change quickly (even vehicles equipped with four-wheel-drive).  Additionally, visitors are also urged to be aware of significant risk of falling trees while driving or walking in the park.
