Stay at the Glacier Point Ski Hut

Yosemite Park’s Glacier Point Ski Hut is situated in the Sierra with spectacular views overlooking Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and the Yosemite High Country.

This ski trip features a 10.5 mile guided ski tour which offers rustic accommodations in a country-style stone and log building. It features a dining area, a wood stove surrounded by several sofas, and indoor restrooms, along with a bunk area that sleeps up to 20 skiers in a dormitory style room.

This ski tour takes the average experienced skier 4 to 5 hours including time for a break and lunch. Faster skiers will have ample time to explore. Children must be at least 14 years of age and accompanied by an adult to stay at the Glacier Point Ski Hut.
