Mother Nature and Caltrans say we must wait.

Caltrans FB Video

From Caltrans, Distric 10 FB:

"SEASONAL PASSES TO REMAIN CLOSED OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
100 Miles Of Road Cleared, But Late Storms, Above Average Snow Depth and Winter Conditions Cause Delay

Despite the heroic efforts of our crews working nearly seven days a week since the beginning of April to clear the high Sierra routes for the summer season, they will remain closed through the Memorial Day holiday weekend due to unusually heavy winter conditions this year.

The work this year has included a snow pack that was 161% of normal. Crews encountered a consistently deeper snow pack at lower elevations than is normal with drifts up to 25 at the higher elevations, which has caused work to slow from a normal average of mile per day most years to at times as little as 1/10 of a mile per day this year."
