CalTrans just opened 4 to the East side of Lake Alpine. Still lots of snow up there and ice on the lake. Look up CalTrans District 10 on Facebook for updates.

Comment from a friend: "Looks like getting across the creek isn't going to be so easy. Notice how high up the trees the drift wood is and all the erosion. This creek must have been raging during the last rains, and probably will rage again once the snows start to melt."

Can confirm. Also the trail that used to be open above (5N14 I think) is gone.

Snow is deep this year....
I haven't been up since February, but I'd guess June opening (if we are lucky)
June would be lucky, unless it starts heating up. The snow pack at the Bear Valley Village (by the gas station) is over 12 ft. deep.
