My husband, 67, spent an absolutely perfect day skiing mid-week (free for over 65). There were only 30 people on the slopes, it had recently snowed, and the conditions were perfect. This is a great location for beginning skiers, and non daredevils. My friends and I snow showed, and it was simply spectacular. There are many snow shoe and cross... More

Our family loves Badger Pass. My husband has been skiing here since he was a child. My daughter learned to ski here. It is a small venue where all the lifts dump out in one location in front of the lodge. There are no black diamond trails. It is perfect for a day of lazy skiing with the family. The... More

It was my first skiing experience and it was incredible. Took intro to ski lessons with Peter, an amazing instructor. I got comfortable skiing in 2 days. Less populated, helpful people, nice facilities, badger pass ski area is an excellent place to learn and to ski.

One of the best things to do in winter that is 100% free is snowshoeing at Badger Pass in Yosemite. Why drive and have to deal with snow chains when you can catch the free shuttle at one of three locations in Yosemite Valley, Curry Village, The Ahwahnee or Yosemite Lodge (note: the names of the lodging facilities are currently...

The ski area is small but lovely. It offers all levels of skiing, Green, Blue and Black Diamond. The snow conditions were perfect. The skiing was absolutely lovely. There is a lodge which offers food. There was a band on a Saturday.

Had a terrific time skiing Yosemite's Badger Pass last week. While not a large ski area, it is perfect for a day or two of easy to moderate runs. Took the shuttle up from Yosemite Valley so we wouldn't have to drive up and glad we did. We were there when Yosemite had several inches of snow dumped on it... More

We decided to go Skiing for a day, with the option of travelling to Badger Pass on a short free shuttle bus ride from our Ahwahnee hotel. Staff are all very helpful and friendly, there is a canteen of food available. The mountains are beautiful with many different difficulty levels available for skiing. Favourite day of the trip and would... More

Spent new years here, with two children that never skied before. While we weren't able to get them lessons, the smaller lift was a good learning experience for first timers. The chairlift we went on was OK, snow was fine, and overall experience was good.
