Winter in Yosemite means no crowds....

Large arrow left

If you weren't able to hop over to a warm, tropical place for December, get up to Yosemite National Park and experience her Winter face, and no crowds to speak of! I've been doing some work up there this month, and I am amazed how little amount of travelers make it there this special time of year. you'll feel like you're the only one among the 1100 sq miles of park. of course some of the roads are closed due to snow, but all the amenities are working like clockwork, the village roads are kept clear. take a run on the snow covered roads and trails, snowshoe the pristine meadows or snowboard at Badger Pass, the park ski resort. stay at the historic Awahnee Lodge or try the less expensive hotels near the Three Western entrances on hwys 120, 140 or 41. remember to bring chains for your car and fuel up before you get into the park. Truly magical to experience this winter wonderland, and have it completely to yourself ! www.nps.gov/yose/
