The Tioga and Glacier Point Roads in Yosemite are closed for the season.  These roads close each fall and remain closed throughout the winter months until weather conditions permit reopening in the spring next year.

Yosemite is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park.  All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions.  All motorists are required to carry tire chains while driving in the park during the winter months.
