Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area

Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area, historically known as Badger Pass, is a small and intimate resort tucked in amidst the awe-inspiring beauty of world-famous Yosemite National Park. Snow sports first found a home in Yosemite in 1928 when Jules Fritch, a Swiss skier, opened the first ski school near the historic Ahwahnee Hotel. Since then, the park has blossomed into a renowned destination and millions of people each year flock to Yosemite to enjoy its stunning, one-of-a-kind vistas, unique geology, fantastic hikes, and sweeping landscapes.

Small with Quality Skiing

It may be small, but the area focuses its energy on the quality of skiing. The season generally runs from December through March. In total there are ten runs, 35 percent beginner, 50  percent intermediate, and 15 percent advanced. There is 800 feet of vertical to explore and two terrain parks to enjoy. The ski school is renowned and has been open since 1928. The instructors are PSIA or AASI certified and have years of experience. In addition to fantastic downhill skiing, a wealth of cross-country skiing is available. In all, Yosemite has 22 miles of groomed cross-country track and 90 miles of marked trails. For those interested in cross-country skating there are more than nine miles of lanes.

Off the Slopes

There are several dining options on the slopes, including quick grab-and-go meal options as well as a pub. There is a retail sports shop, an activity and information desk, lockers, ski repair shop, outdoor barbeque, first aid as well as a variety of guided snowshoe walks. There is no longer slope-side lodging offered, but guests have an extensive array of wonderful lodging options in the area. Lodging options are numerous with several amazingly affordable  packages each winter, from beautiful and historic inns to more modern and luxurious lodges in the area. Many of the lodgings in the area offer free shuttles to the ski area.
