Snow close to Yosemite next month

We are coming to Yosemite over the easter weekend and unfortunately Badger Pass will have closed already. I am looking for somewhere close by to take the kids for snow play and possibly sledding. We were hoping to travel to Tahoe but we leave San Fran 5 days after we are in Yosemite and didn't think this allowed us enough time to see Tahoe and San Fran before we leave. We don't want to spend the whole time in the car.

Can anyone recommend somewhere where we can stay near snow for a night?

Thanks so much

Snow, in general, may be a problem this year. April may be even more problematic. There is a Snow Play just outside the south gate of Yosemite on Hwy 41 near the Fish Camp. It is open to the public but bring your own equipment.

There is another snow play area across from Crane Flat as well. I believe the elevation is a bit higher than Fish Camp so the snow may be there longer. There are a couple of good sledding hills.

Would it be worthwhile to do the drive to Tahoe then?

Thanks for your feedback. :)

For sure you wil find snow on Hwy 88. This is a great place to stay - and near the snow.

Dodge Ridge & Leland Snow Play area are on Highway 108 and might cut some time out of your road traveling. You can check both out from the visitors bureau website. www.TCVB.com

Have a neat time.
