Yosemite National Park is a four-season playground with dog-friendly appeal. The destination shines during the quieter winter season, when sunshine sparkles off snowy peaks and icy waterways. Frosty forests set the backdrop for snowshoeing, skiing, skating and more. Some lower-elevation trails are plowed, too, so it’s easy to explore Yosemite Mariposa County with four-legged friends.
Whether you stay at Yosemite View Lodge, near the park’s west entrance, or overnight within the park – The Redwoods In Yosemite rents cabins and vacation homes in Wawona – you’ll find cozy accommodations, pup-focused amenities, and winter wonders at every turn.
