posted in: Yosemite

YOSEMITE — The February snow survey results are in, say officials in Yosemite National Park.

“Snowpack (based on water content) is 68% of average for the Tuolumne River basin and 59% of average for the Merced River basin,” the park announced on social media. “That said, it’s far too early to make predictions about road openings or spring conditions: we have many potentially snowy weeks left.”

Here’s hoping!
