Snow Block Most Routes to Yosemite

February 4, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
Snow has made getting into Yosemite nearly impossible. Up to 10 inches of snow fell at Yosemite National Park yesterday after it got 8 inches Thursday night. The park's plows could not keep up with the heavy snowfall.

Highway 41 is closed between Wawona and Yosemite Valley, so you can get into the park, but not into the valley. Highway 120 is also closed west of pine flat.

Highway 140 is open for the time being and it's the only way to get into the valley. Badger Pass Road is also closed, so the ski resort is essentially shut down.
