5 Yosemite Adventures For Your Winter Bucket List

Explore Yosemite in its most rugged time of year.

As with any adventure in the backcountry during winter, be sure you have the essential safety knowledge, skills, and gear.  

Yosemite National Park is one of those special places where each season seems to be more beautiful than the last, and winter is no exception. If anything, it’s the most spectacular time to explore the park. With colder temperatures and snow comes fewer crowds, and the park feels more remote and wild than ever. Once you hike a few miles away from the Valley, you’ll really start to feel like you have the whole park to yourself. If you’ve been considering pushing your winter adventures to the next level, Yosemite should top your list.
