Badger Pass Ski Area opens for 80th anniversary

Yosemite National Park’s Badger Pass Ski Area opened on Sunday, Dec.14 after the recent California storm produced more than 20 inches of snow at Badger. Badger Pass Ski Area’s snowtubing hill will open at a later date as more snow is needed.

Badger Pas, operated by park concessioner Delaware North at Yosemite, opened in 1935 and is California’s original ski resort. With 10 slope runs of varying difficulty and five convenient lifts, Badger Pass is ideal for beginner skiers and snowboarders. In addition to downhill skiing, Yosemite boasts nearly 100 miles of stunning cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails that originate from Badger Pass. The ski area offers rentals, lessons, dining and guided cross-country and snowshoe trips.

Delaware North at Yosemite offers a variety of ski and lodging offers including the "Stay Two Nights & Ski for Free" package and a season pass benefit program offering unlimited skiing/snowboarding, free and discounted lodging, discounted dining and shopping, discounted summer activities and discounted lift tickets for friends and family.
