– The Town is planning to begin clearing snow from Lake Mary Road and throughout the Lakes Basin on Monday, June 19, 2023. This activity is estimated to take approximately 5-7 days, pending the composition of the deep and dense snowpack. 

– Once cleared, the road will open for USFS administrative, utility and contractor access to begin operations to safely reopen the Lakes Basin for permitted operators and summer visitation. 

– The U.S. Forest Service – Inyo National Forest will determine the opening date for the Lakes Basin.

– The Town will provide regular updates to the public regarding the opening of the Lakes Basin.
