Tire chains are required.

Areas remaining closed as of Wednesday:

All roads in Yosemite are closed due to heavy snow and fallen trees.

People currently in Yosemite should stay inside to avoid falling trees.

Call (209) 372-0200 to check road status anytime.

Jack Sawyer sent us pictures from inside Yosemite National Park and a video of a tree falling. Jack said his girlfriend was shooting video of all the snow when they heard a crack and were amazed to capture the tree falling, almost hitting the cars parked nearby.
