winter activities


Yosemite National Park

Winter is an extraordinary time of year to visit Yosemite National Park. Witness snow-tipped mountains and enjoy cold-weather activities in the snow such as ice skating, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing.

Trails can become extremely slippery and icy during the winter. Snow cleats will add stabilization, can fit on any set of shoes you own, and are incredibly simple to attach and remove.
