Still Badger Pass to me. I have always enjoyed the trails out on Glacier Point Road for cross country skiing and snow shoeing. Simply beautiful

I spent a day skiing here on Wednesday in late March, the last week of the ski season. It was an excellent experience. My ten year old daughter had never skied and my husband and I hadn't skied in over 15 years. So we arrived at around 10 and asked about lessons. They were able to get us into a... More

Ranger Erik took us more than a mile off from the area, and off trail. Great experience on snowshoes, and filled with information. Highly recommend to anyone.

One couldn't ask for a more beautiful day! We skied on a Wednesday - the slopes were almost deserted. Lift tickets were very reasonable for a 1/2 day ticket. Parking was very convenient. There are no black diamonds here - but if you just want to have an enjoyable day skiing and enjoying the scenery - this is the place... More

The ski area is small but lovely. It offers all levels of skiing. It is perfect for a day or two of easy to moderate runs.

We decided to go snow-shoeing here. During the winter there are several guided snow-shoeing tours held here. But we realized that we found it too risky to ride up the road to badger pass. So we took the shuttle the next day. There is a shuttle that leaves the valley floor by 8:30 and gets you in here by 10... More

This is a quaint and relaxed ski area. Super chill and very family friendly. You'll see kids all around. I took two private snowboard lessons and they were very helpful. I loved the fact that they let me switch out the snowboard for skis near the end of my day. The toughest slope is moderate so if you are looking... More

We love this ski and snowboard area. It's smaller and much less crowded than the Tahoe ski areas. Mostly intermediate and beginner runs with a few advanced slopes that makes it ideal for the whole family.

The Glacier Point Road from Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area (Badger Pass) is closed in the winter and the only way out to Glacier Point is to ski, snowshoe or hike. The road is groomed by a snow machine several times during the week for skiers. We ask that hikers ans snowshoes stay on the extreme edges of the groomed... More

We arrived 4 days before the resort shut for the season. We spent two hours snow-tubing, and hire snow shoes for a hike. The area is so beautiful under snow - well worth the $120 we spent on the activity.
