An Unrivaled Cross-Country Experience

Yosemite National Park is home to some of the most beautiful cross-country skiing trails in the world—renowned for their outstanding views of the surrounding mountains and famous Yosemite landmarks. From the Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area, you’ll find 90 miles of marked trails and 25 miles of groomed track—including the beloved cross-country track from Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area to Glacier Point (a 21-mile round trip). Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, you'll find mile after mile of beauty and tranquility in Yosemite.

Yosemite's Cross-Country Ski School has been teaching the sport since 1970. Beyond providing lessons for skiers of all levels, the School also provides ski tours and leads overnight excursions to Glacier Point and the Yosemite backcountry. Additionally, the School offers rental equipment—including cross-country skis, skate skis, telemark skis, snowshoes and specialized sleds for pulling children.

The school is open daily all winter from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
