The winter wonderland of Badger Pass Ski Area in Yosemite National Park will open for the season Saturday, Dec. 12.
Its snowtubing hill will open at a later date as more snow is needed.
Badger Pass, operated by park concessioner Delaware North, is California’s original ski resort.
With 10 slope runs of varying difficulty and five lifts, Badger Pass is ideal for beginner skiers and snowboarders. In addition to downhill skiing, Yosemite has nearly 100 miles of majestic cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails that originate from the area. There are also rentals, lessons, casual dining and guided cross-country and snowshoe trips.
U.S. active military personnel and veterans ski free at Badger Pass.
