Yosemite National Park Will Remain Closed Due to Significant Winter Storm Warning

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK – Yosemite will remain closed at least until Saturday, January 30, 2021, conditions permitting.

Park staff continue to clear roads and trails, mitigate hazard trees, and work toward restoring safe conditions for employees and visitors due to last week’s Mono wind event.

A significant winter storm is forecast to begin Tuesday night. Hazardous conditions, including substantial snow accumulation, falling trees, and dangerous road conditions, are anticipated through the week.

When the park reopens, it will be open 24 hours per day.

Upper Pines Campground will open on February 8. Yosemite Valley Lodge and The Ahwahnee will open on February 5.

Visitors will be able to enter the park using El Portal Road (Highway 140), Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120 from the west), and Hetch Hetchy Road. Areas south of Yosemite Valley (including Badger Pass, Wawona, Mariposa Grove, South Entrance, and Wawona Road) will remain closed until further notice.
