SONORA – Winter’s early arrival in Yosemite National Park has captivated travelers from around the world.

Recent storms have filled the high country meadows with powder, and the mighty waterfalls have sprung back to life. In between snowfalls, the change of seasons can also offer a peaceful calm. Summer crowds are a distant memory as the wildlife retreat to their winter dens. The landscape is altered by forces of nature that spark the imaginations of curious visitors from all over the globe. A winter stroll through snow covered trees evokes memories of carefree days of childhood pasts. Only a relative few have discovered what the locals try to keep secret. Join them in this wonderland of snow covered cliffs and wispy waterfalls to create your own memories that will last a lifetime.

Perhaps it will give you a better understanding of what those intrepid residents have known all along. Non-peak visits to Yosemite are among the most magical of America’s best ideas., one of Yosemite’s leading tour companies, is offering an exclusive selection of discounted tours during the offseason months of December through March. Once each week, park enthusiasts will have the opportunity to join a local naturalist on a walk across the floor of Yosemite Valley to marvel at its sheer cliffs and leaping water or through an enchanted sequoia grove on a pair of snowshoes. Other enticing offering will include more challenging hikes featuring towering waterfalls as well as snowshoe treks high above on the south rim of the valley at Dewey Point. Regardless of the level of difficulty you choose, you’re guaranteed to enjoy your personal ‘snow day’ in Yosemite. In celebration of those willing to brave the journey to this enchanted land, each hike will be discounted to a price of $50 per person including use of snowshoes and poles when applicable.
