***UPDATE as 7:30pm on May 12th***
Ugh… Mono County Tourism was incorrect about Sonora Pass opening tomorrow.
Sonora Pass won’t actually open until Wednesday, May 18th.
Mark it, dude.
***ORIGINAL ARTICLE from May 11th***
Mono County Tourism is reporting that 9,624′ Sonora Pass (hwy 108) in CA will open this Friday, May 13th at noon. We aren’t sure if this opening is just from east to pass or all the way through. The backcountry skiing and riding off Sonora Pass is world class.
There are rumors that 8,730′ Ebbetts Pass (hwy 4) will open this Friday the 13th at noon, as well.
Monitor Pass (hwy 89) is already open.
This Friday the 13th is looking to be a very lucky day for backcountry skiers and riders in California.
These 3 highway passes allow easy access to some of the best backcountry skiing in North America.
Get out there!
