One of our knowledgeable Yosemite guides will meet you up at the Badger Pass parking area where they will provide snowshoes and hiking poles and will educate you on the proper techniques of snow shoeing and safe backcountry winter travel. Along the way, you will pass through a winter wonderland of snow covered trees, meadows and beautiful Yosemite vistas ending with the awe inspiring Dewey Point outlook. For those looking for an extra challenge, this hike can be extended to include Crocker and Stanford Point, two more amazing outlooks beyond Dewey Point.
Guides carry first aid kits, water purification methods, toilet paper (for emergencies), suntan lotion and bug repellent. Please plan to bring your own lunch, snacks, water bottles, etc. Remember, all profits from our guided trips go towards supporting our youth summer camp program.
Note: Should weather, fire, and/or delayed seasonal openings affect the chosen itinerary, a different itinerary will be offered. You will be kept in contact throughout this process. That being said, some of Yosemite most unique winter phenomena occur in less than ideal weather conditions! If there is not enough snow on the ground, the trip will still run as a hiking trip.
