Thanks in advance,
I'm not an expert on the tram, but my experience is that if you arrive at 7-7:30am, you can buy a ticket on the first car up, even when the on-line tickets are sold out. If you have information to the contrary, I am sure there are people on this discussion board, including me, who would like to know it.
The question I have is whether there is enough snow on the Sid Davis route to cover the manzanita. I kind of doubt it, but I could be wrong. Perhaps the rangers at the Long Valley Ranger Station can tell you, if you can get through to them.
