Experience Yosemite’s solitude backcountry ski and stay at the mountain cabin. The Yosemite Winter Club – Cross Country Ski Section has been active for decades. Its primary purpose is to provide supported ski trips.

The members of the Club pack and deliver caches into the various huts and cabins located throughout Yosemite in the late fall and retrieve them in the spring. Thus the members are able to ski with a much lighter packs containing only lunch, snacks, and sleeping bags.

Members have years of cross country skiing experience, including backcountry skiing, and are excited to teach others who wish to learn and experience the thrill of skiing into the back country of Yosemite in the middle of winter. Come view at least 40 years of trips throughout Yosemite, learn about how the ski equipment has developed over the years and the opportunities to learn how to cross country ski or broaden your knowledge of cross country skiing into the back country realm.
