Program Overview: Most people visit the park during the summer months. On this day trip, you’ll experience many locals’ favorite time of year in Yosemite — winter!

Join us for a guided snowshoe hike to Dewey Point, high above Yosemite Valley. As you make your way through frosty forests, your guide will point out glittering peaks, animal tracks, and more. Enjoy lunch at the overlook, where you’ll find spectacular views of El Capitan, Ribbon Fall and other natural wonders, and then take the scenic route back to Badger Pass Ski Area.
