What is the best time of year to visit?
Each season brings it's own special beauty. We feel that any time you are able to visit is a great time to come!
The early spring brings thundering waterfalls and a bit later in the spring and early summer offers abundant wildflowers and crisp evenings. Keep in mind that the weather in spring can be vary from snow storms to warm days. Tire chains may be required.
Late in the summer, the main waterfalls in Yosemite Valley tend to be dry, however there is more access to the high country and all facilities within the park are open.
Fall brings a rainbow of colors as the trees begin shedding their leaves. Typically, the days are comfortable with cool evenings.
Winter is a very special time in the area. Snow blankets the mountains and there is a special beauty to the quiet atmosphere. Badger Pass, Yosemite's ski area, is open and some of the nearby activities include downhill and cross country skiing as well as sleigh rides, ice skating and snow mobile rentals. It is required by law to carry tire chains when entering the National Park during winter months, so be prepared.
