Yosemite National Park yesterday declared: We’re having another very dry year.
The February 1 snow survey results are in, and the Merced River drainage snowpack is 16% of average and the Tuolumne River drainage is 25% of average (this is similar to February 2014 and 2015). So warm and dry in fact, that the bears are awake and hungry!
Nevertheless, the winter rangers are reporting great skiing conditions around Tuolumne Meadows. Read more from yesterdays update.
