The Pass is Open! (April 2013)
Ebbetts Pass is now open from Lake Alpine to Markleeville. It’s always great fun to be one of the first folks to drive over when the pass opens and we encourage you to visit our Facebook page and post your photos.
Did you see the most recent edition of Sunset Magazine? Ebbetts Pass is mentioned (along with Sonora Pass) as one of the best mountain drives through the Sierras with the best scenic views. Make a weekend of it and do the whole loop.
And remember to always check Road Conditions before traveling as the pass is likely to be closed briefly at various times if we get more snow.
Have fun out there!
