NileGuide Expert tip:
Call 209 372 0200 to check road and weather conditions. Depending on conditions, rangers can require tire chains for you to get to Badger, so taking the free shuttle from Yosemite Valley is a a great way to go.
- This is a great way to experience the winter beauty of Yosemite and learn how to ski. The more than 30 miles of free marked trails, including 10 miles of free groomed track, makes Yosemite popular with cross-country skiers. A basic package consists of two, two-hour group cross-country ski lessons at Badger Pass Ski Area. The fee includes lessons and equipment rental. Between your classes, you can buy lunch on the deck, a snack, wine, beer or soft drinks at the day lodge. If you don't want/need a lesson, the Nordic shop rents track, backcountry, skate ski and telemark gear, as well as snowshoes. Best deal: the park offers free bus service from the Ahwahnee, Curry Village or Yosemite Lodge to the Badger Pass Ski Area.
