Winter Retreat

America’s most famous national park isn’t just an ideal destination during warmer weather. Yosemite has more to offer winter travelers than you can imagine, and The Ahwahnee is the perfect luxurious base for your adventure.

Epic skiing, thrilling snowboarding, skating, snow-shoe trailing, tubing and cross-country adventures — those are just a few of the activities available at Yosemite during the winter months. The Ahwahnee, the park’s gorgeous lodge, makes for a perfect base of operations for enjoying them all, or simply soaking up the luxury of a stay in the heart of a stunning winter wilderness. Whether you’ve spent the day conquering the slopes, or simply soaking up the beauty of nearby Glaciar Point or Half Dome, treat yourself to The Ahwahnee’s special Chef’s Holiday event, running from Jan. 6-31. Meet world-class culinary experts, take part in demonstrations and tastings, and enjoy a 5-course candlelight gala dinner. Rooms start at $476;
