Terrain Parks - Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area

Rider's Guide

There are ten runs and nearly 100 acres to ski and snowboard in about 300 inches of powdery snow each season. The ski area is small by west coast standards, but the quality of terrain, the abundance of snow, and the small crowds more than make up for its size. It is ideal for beginner and intermediate riders, but everyone’s guaranteed to find terrain that is challenging.

Parks and Pipes

The upper park is the smaller of the two terrain parks, with features perfect for children, beginner, and intermediate riders. There are a wide variety of unthreatening boxes, jumps, and rails to enjoy. The lower park caters more toward the intermediate and advanced rider and freestyle skier with larger jumps, longer rails, and bigger boxes.

Out of Bounds

The most popular activity is to cross-country ski in the area. The hundreds of miles of trails make it possible for guests to explore some of the best views the park has to offer and to really enjoy a true backwoods experience. There is also a sizeable skating track, full moon snowshoe walks and other guided and unguided adventures to explore.

Hangout & Hookup

The Snowflake Room is the ski area’s pub on the slopes and is a great meeting place during and after a fantastic day of riding. There is a lovely assortment of cuisine and an extensive drink menu. The Snowflake Room features great views of the ski area and has amazing pictures of the first skiers at Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area when it was known only as Badger Pass, which serves as something of a museum and homage to the history of snow sports. The area also has several great accommodations, with bars and great après ski locations perfect for relaxing and unwinding with friends and family. Yosemite is not renowned for its nightlife and is low-key in comparison to bigger ski resorts, but there are plenty of options for those looking for a mellow end to the day.
