Adventure Hike - Snowshoe to Dewey Point
Join the Yosemite Mountaineering School and Guide Service on an epic day of snowshoeing through Yosemite's winter wonderland. Our professional guides will lead you through meadows, fir and pine forests on the way to one of Yosemite's most breath-taking views, Dewey Point, located at the rim of the valley. From this vista, Yosemite's icons can be seen: El Capitan, Half Dome, Mt. Hoffman, Mt. Conness and the Clark Range. Due to the distance and duration of the snowshoe walk, children will need to be at least 12 years of age and accompanied by an adult. Make reservations at the Tour & Activity Desk (209) 372-1240 located in the lobby of Yosemite Lodge at the Falls, the Concierge Desk at The Ahwahnee or by calling the Nordic Center directly at (209) 372-8444.

Full Moon Snowshoe Walk
For a few days when the moon is full each month, we offer a Full Moon Snowshoe Walk in the evenings. With the full moon above reflecting off the snow below, this is a magic time in Yosemite. Join our naturalist guides in exploring this special experience.
During the day, National Park Service naturalists also lead snowshoe walks from the Badger Pass ranger station. There is no rental fee for these walks, although a small donation is requested.
