Tioga Pass webcam status
The Dave Peterson Memorial Tioga Pass Camera is in place and taking photos. However, we are waiting for permission from the park service to access their internet. The phone line internet access at Tioga Pass was removed when the park switched to a satellite internet provider. At this time we do not have permission to access thier internet link and we are unable to relay images. .
Thank you for your interest and please check here for the latest updates!

2012-11-09 17:26:57 Hey All! I'm new to posting here, but been a fan of the bv wiki site for awhile now! My family has a cabin on Bloods Ridge Road. Just curious if anyone know if the roads are open this weekend? Noticed a foot of new snow or so. —AndrewSoule

2012-11-13 10:47:10 Yes. I have enlisted the aid of our friends at BVRE to help me troubleshoot it remotely but if that doesn't work it may be another couple weeks until I can get it back up and running. —CharlesRead

2012-12-04 08:22:51 i guess the storms were too warm, snow levels too high. —TonyZuccarino
2012-12-04 12:34:26 I had a feeling. The temps were pretty warm here in the bay area (Pacific tropical rain). Hopefully the next few storms will be colder. —AndrewSoule

2012-12-25 15:39:07 all that snow doesn't make me miss skiing. Makes me miss riding that sled rocket thru deep powder over near Lake Alpine. Hope Charles enjoying it now! —TonyZuccarino

2012-12-25 19:48:17 I dont know how the new Sheriff is, but I sure got along well with the previous Deputy who warned me about plowing thru BV lots, but followed up immediately with 'follow me, I've got better spots' ... —TonyZuccarino
