About the Ski Resort

Located in the heart of world-famous Yosemite National Park, Badger Pass is California's original ski resort. Fewer crowds, family-friendly activities and a dedicated and skilled staff combine to make your ski adventure fun, friendly and fulfilling.

There are ten alpine ski trails, an 800-foot vertical, and 90 miles of marked XC trails. Badger is a great place for families to ski together or to learn to ski.

The Yosemite Cross-Country Ski School offers a progression of lessons, each designed to improve your skiing in a different way, including trail and off-track lessons, cross-country downhill (telemark) and cross-country skating.

Services at Badger Pass include a cafeteria, ski shop, day lodge, ski repair shop, and baby-sitting.
