Badger Pass Ski Area to temporarily close

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Badger Pass Ski Area in Yosemite is temporarily closing soon due to a lack of snow. Delaware North Companies first opened Badger Pass for the season on Dec. 14.

Managers say they plan to close after business on Monday in consideration of guest safety, resource protection and guest experience. But they plan to reopen as soon as the area gets an appropriate amount of new snow.

Founded in 1935, Yosemite's Badger Pass Ski Area is California's first ski resort and the perfect ski destination for families. Badger Pass is the gateway to some of the most beautiful vistas in the High Sierra, offering five convenient lifts and spacious, groomed runs for downhill skiers and snowboarders, in addition to snowshoeing, snow tubing and cross-country ski trails. The Yosemite Ski School was established in 1928 and has taught generations of first-time skiers. Badger Pass Ski Area is operated by Delaware North at Yosemite, authorized National Park Service concessionaire, responsible for lodging, dining, guest recreation, retail and transportation in Yosemite.
