Snowshoeing for Everyone

Snowshoeing for Everyone

During the winter months, snowshoeing is an absolute highlight of any trip to Yosemite National Park. In the past decade, snowshoes have become lighter and easier to use than ever—made with aircraft-grade aluminum and bindings that allow them to fit comfortably over ordinary winter boots. All you need is a little patience when you get started and a moderate level of fitness. Snowshoeing is an excellent activity for Park visitors all ages.

Snowshoeing Trail Information


Guided Snowshoe Hikes

Join the Yosemite Mountaineering School and Guide Service on an epic day of snowshoeing through Yosemite's winter wonderland. Our professional guides will lead you through meadows, fir and pine forests on the way to one of Yosemite's most breath-taking views, Dewey Point, located at the rim of the valley. From this vista, Yosemite's icons can be seen: El Capitan, Half Dome, Mt. Hoffman, Mt. Conness and the Clark Range. Due to the distance and duration of the snowshoe walk, children will need to be at least 12 years of age and accompanied by an adult.
