Yosemite Winter Experience

Yosemite Winter Experience


Winter At Its Finest

Ask anyone who's been to Yosemite National Park in the winter if they could imagine a place with more stunning beauty, greater solitude, more things to do—or a better way to spend their winter vacation—and we’re confident they'll tell you no. Simply put, most any traveler who spends time in Yosemite during the winter months spends the rest of the year dreaming about returning.

With the crowds gone, snow covering the park's most famous landmarks and bright blue skies above, Yosemite truly shines in the winter. Photographers will be awed by the picture-perfect scenery that fills their lens. Alpine skiers and snowboarders will enjoy fresh powder runs with unmatched mountain views. Cross-country skiers can head out for an unimaginably beautiful and rewarding journey to Glacier Point Ski Hut, where a warm meal and comfortable bed will be waiting for them. Throughout the Park, well-maintained trails welcome snowshoers of all levels—a favorite with families.

Through it all, you'll be welcomed with the hospitality that Yosemite National Park is known for. The gracious and accommodating staff at our hotels, lodges and restaurants will help you settle in by the fire, cook up mouthwatering meals to tempt your appetite and help you plan unforgettable days under the Yosemite sunshine.
