Yosemite Ready For Holiday Weekend

Sponsored by:

The latest round of winter storms is bringing new snow to Yosemite National Park, just in time for the three day Holiday weekend.

Scott Gediman, Yosemite National Park Ranger and spokesperson, was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

Although official measurements have not yet been taken, Gediman believes the snow simply adds to the winter beauty of the park, just in time for the three day Holiday weekend.

Gediman says that Yosemite is a year round Park and although there is a lack of high trail hiking and camping, visitors will find plenty to do.

Snowshoes can be rented, numerous lower trails are kept clear, there is outdoor ice-skating available and snow skiing takes place at Badger Pass Ski area (within the Park).

Additionally, most restaurants, galleries and visitors centers remain open.

Even though the bears are hibernating, wildlife can still be seen in abundance from mule deer, bobcats, coyotes and gray foxes.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” can be heard each weekday morning at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47 on AM 1450 KVML.
