Experience the magic and majesty of winter in Yosemite Valley on a hike or snowshoe (depending on conditions). We’ll wander along the Valley Loop Trail at a relaxed pace, observing a transformed winter wonderland. You’ll see all your favorite sights in a new light, noticing streaks on the dramatic granite faces created by the melting snow and ice on the cliffs above. Your guide will help you learn about the resident birds and animals who survive in the Valley despite the harsh climate. The exact route will be chosen based on trail and weather conditions leading up to the program.
