    anyone one planning on being around? My wife and I are thinking of either Sunday or Monday, Ellery Bowl (maybe I’ll hump it up to the Dana Plateau if I can manage it).

    I’ll probably take both skis and my split; mode of descent TBD 😉

    I’ll be there with wavy. Possibly others. We plan on getting there Sat evening sometime, riding Sun/Mon. Location depends on whether the road is open, weather etc. Mo-mart dinner Sat night (and Sun too… hell, probably Mon too)!

    Geez, jimw. Why don’t you arrange for them to FedEx you meals during the week too. 😉

    The road’s not open is it? I didn’t think there was even a chance.

    OK update, looks like fullers2oh and I will be in attendance. Sunday/Monday remains the window of choice, camping likely to be involved.

    I thought CalTrans was going to get that shit clear for Memorial day! What will all the fishermen do?!?!1

    Good to see that the Woah Nellie Deli continues its reign as the Eastside eatery of choice…

    Good idea, I’ll have to look into it.

    I dunno. I heard rumors that they were going to try to get it open to the park this weekend, but who knows. Two weeks ago it looked like they were just about to Ellery Lake.

    It will probably open on Tuesday. 🙂

    According to Lee Vining ranger station recording, Caltrans hotline, and someone at the Mo-Mart, Tioga road is still closed at the lower gate as of today. Hmm…

    confirmed on the gate…. 😥

    Va Lakes and Sonora should be good if you head that far north. Its been REALLY windy though so come prepared. 🙂

    Some friends and I are wanting to do stuff around Saddlebag Lake. Looks like some TGR mags and my group will be up hiking Sat and Sun.
