Yes, snow is common in winter months

If you’re like the rest of winter in Yosemite fans, chances are that you have been waiting ever so anxiously for snow.  Usually, snow has covered Yosemite by this time, but this year the powder took longer than anticipated to reach this National Park.  Now, we’re happy to say that the snow is finally here!  We recently had two feet of snowfall in Yosemite at Badger Pass Ski area, which means it’s time to bring out your sleds, ice skates, skis, hats, mittens, and more. Now that snow has fallen, Badger Pass Ski Area is now open, and Yosemite’s Scenic Wonders is the closest accommodations to the lifts, just a scenic 15 minute drive!  Whether you’re a seasoned skier or a novice, you won’t want to miss out on the freshly fallen snow that is covering the slopes.  Even if you are not a skier, the Badger Pass Ski Area has something for you.  Enjoy sledding, ice skating, or even take some photos.  Truly, nothing is as breath-taking as Yosemite in the winter after the first snowfall.  The snowflakes sparkle on the trees like diamonds and the views are simply majestic.
