Winter Wonder

-- Staff reportJanuary 2, 2013 

Last week's storms brought between 10 and 14 inches of snow to the southern Sierra, and several feet in the high country, bringing people to Yosemite National Park to enjoy the new wintery wonderland or ski the slopes of Badger Pass Ski Area.

For cross-country skiers, tracks were set to Glacier Point on Sunday night, and out to Bridalveil Campground on Monday night. As of Monday, snow base depth conditions at Badger Pass averaged about four and a half feet of snow.

Last weekend, about five feet of snow was also reported on the ground in Tuolumne Meadows, in the high country of Yosemite National Park.

Sunshine is anticipated through Friday in the Oakhurst area.
