Myself and boyfriend are looking to visit Yosemite in late March (29-31st) from the UK after visiting SF and the coastline beforehand. We have researched in weather conditions and what will be open etc. but still have a few things that we're a bit unsure about.
Re. accommodation. We would like to stay in a cabin/lodge with kitchen facilities and have found some lovely cabins in Foresta, however, we are concerned about the driving conditions here due to the possibility of snow (needing chains etc.). Is this a high enough elevation to be worried about snow at this time? Alternatively we have looked at the option of staying in the Bug Mountain Resort and catching the bus into the valley if Foresta is out. However, we would prefer to be closer if possible??
Additionally we would like to do some trails/hiking and possibly rent a bike over our stay and are trying to work out what would be open at this time. We would like to do the Vernal Fall/Mirror Lake/Upper Yosemite Valley - is this accessible/doable at this time (we are relatively fit and in early 20s) and do we need any specialist equipment?
Many thanks for your help it is much appreciated! :)
