Winter time in Yosemite National Park

Winter is Yosemite’s least popular season in terms of visits, but after a new layer of snow, the park is spectacular.

Though Tioga Road is completely closed and cuts access to Tuolumne Meadows and High Sierra, Glacier Point Road is plowed to the Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area, a small ski area with alpine and cross-country trails.

In the Yosemite Valley, the Ahwahnee Hotel offers various fabulous events, including wine tasting, vacation with chefs and the famous Bracebridge Christmas dinner. In the last two weeks of February, hundreds of visitors come to the Yosemite Valley hoping to see the fire, one of Yosemite’s most incredible natural spectacles.
