Trip Report

This was a great trip.  Though there was not much snow on the valley floor there was plenty at Badger Pass. We where able to snow shoe out to Dewey Point which was a great view.  Some made it up to the top of upper falls, so the lack of snow in some areas was kinda nice.  We had a great group of people and where able to hang out after the days activities.

Event Description

 

This is about 20 minutes outside the west entrance of Yosemite   This year we are staying in a house on the property. Still will be co-ed rooms so if you are not comfortable sharing a room with both this is not the trip for you. The beds have sheets and blankets but a sleeping bag is not a bad thing to bring for extra warmth if needed. There is a full kitchen so you can cook there if you do not want to eat out each day.  The trip will be for up to 15 people with both houses, The cost will be $95.00per person for the entire weekend. People will be added to the active list once I have received payment for the trip. So if the trip looks full add your name if you want to go and bed you will want, and if there is still room I will send information on where to send payment. In the bigger house there are two twin beds in the common room, One Queen bed in a room of its own, a Queen bed with two bunks together, the bathroom is in between these two rooms and will be shared by those in the house, a day bed in a room to itself, there is a bathroom upstairs to also be shared. The other house has Pullout couch sleeps two, in common room, twin bunk bed, and queen bed in room of its own, the bathroom for the bunkhouse is in the room with the queen bed and will be used by everyone in the bunkhouse. Queen beds sleep two and will need to sleep two. Please let me know which bed will work for you, queen beds need to sleep two. I am going to try and have sleeping arrangements worked out before the trip. Just a reminder this is a co-ed trip and you will be sharing rooms with people you may not know… Both houses have a full kitchen.    As the trip gets closer I will send specific info on where we will be staying.

Please let me know if you need a single or double bed when you sign up.

There is a café that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also a kitchen that can be used if you want to make your own food. There is also a full spa on the property, facilities are an extra expense. I plan on getting there on Friday, Saturday going into the park and doing some site seeing and also some hiking or snowshoeing depending on conditions. Sunday either going into park again or maybe if there is any good hiking nearby doing some hiking around there. There is also skating rink at Curry Village. Feel free to plan whatever activities you would like it is up to you to have fun do not rely on others. Park entrance fee is $20 but good for the whole time we are there NO PLUS ONES OR BRINGING FRIEND There will be no refunds after December 15, 2011.
