Winter Adventures in Yosemite National Park

Hi, I'm Leah!

Yosemite National Park is one of the country’s most iconic—and most visited—national parks, often filled with so many people in the summer months that it can be hard to find a peaceful nature experience. In the winter months, however, the nearly empty park is often blanketed in snow, providing crowd-free activities that show off its natural wonders.


1. Snowshoeing

If hiking is your usual mountain activity, then low-impact snowshoeing is the way to go in the winter. Book a guided tour so you don’t have to worry about following a map as you traverse the snow-covered wilderness of Yosemite Valley, the giant sequoia grove, the high country, or other park locations. Most tours typically include use of equipment, so you won’t have to rent your own snowshoes and poles.


4. Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding

Most visitors to this area of California who want to ski and snowboard head to one of Lake Tahoe’s many resorts, but Yosemite does have its own designated space: Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area (formerly known as Badger Pass). The resort features gear rental, a handful of chairlifts, a terrain park, a tubing hill, lesson for kids, and 10 runs that range from beginner to intermediate to advanced.
