Roads into Yosemite closed

All roads leading into Yosemite National Park are temporarily closed because of snow, ice, mudslides, fallen trees and downed power lines, a park service statement said.

Over the last 24 hours, a winter storm dropped more than 3.5 feet of snow throughout the park in areas including Yosemite Valley, Wawona, and Crane Flat. Approximately 9 inches of snow fell in El Portal. 

Highways 41 (Wawona Road), 120 (Big Oak Flat Road), and 140 (El Portal Road) into Yosemite National Park are closed at this time due to snowy and icy conditions.

Caltrans also temporarily closed Highway 140 outside of the park boundary between El Portal and Mid Pines because of mud slides, rockfall, downed power lines, and fallen trees.

The Badger Pass Road and the Hetch Hetchy Road are also closed at this time.

There is a winter storm warning in effect.

For 24-hour information for roads within Yosemite National Park, call 372-0200. For updates on conditions for roads outside of Yosemite, call Caltrans at (800) 427-7623.
