Hi Laura - Happy Holidays; 2012 is just around the corner. I was wondering how many more spots available on the Yosemite, or Close to It trip? One of my friends was interested in joining us.

Kaz, that's aweful. We were looking forward to carpooling. Does anyone else have a 4 wheel drive we can carpool with. We will share the gas etc. There are 3 of us now looking for a carpool, myself, Laura S and Rashid.
Please let me know.

JIm, I'd like to ride up with you if you still have room. Just email me with detail e.g. meet point, departure time. Al.

Hi all,
The trip is around corner. The snow level last night was down to 2200. Make sure you have you chains for those driving. Also you if you were planning on taking the 41 into the valley from Oakhurst I would call and make sure it is open.
Stay warm be careful and we will see you there.

Call 209/372-0200 (press 1 then 1) for the most up-to-date conditions (the information below only reflects planned or long-term closures).

Carry tire chains in your car and be prepared to use them (even if you have four-wheel drive): chains may become mandatory at any time
