So here it is winter already! What a year we have had. With the Rim Fire and the Park Closing causing a little ruckus at the end of the summer we are sure happy to welcome our winter activities!! We are expecting our first snow this weekend! Badger Pass in Yosemite National Park is the most wonderful place to go. So family friendly and AFFORDABLE!! Which is rare this day and age!! Looks like Badger will be opening on December 13th this year, so grab your skis, boots and poles (or snowboards or snowshoes) and head for the hills. Stay with us at the 5th Street Inn and enjoy the beautiful drive up through Yosemite Valley and on to Badger Pass. Badger Pass is a full-service ski resort offering ski and snowboard instruction, rental equipment, a ski shop, childcare, and a cafeteria and lounge. Or maybe you would like to try ice skating in the beautiful Yosemite Valley. “Ice skating has been a tradition since the 1930s. Tucked beneath the majestic forms of Half Dome, and Glacier Point, this one-of-a-kind Northern California skating rink offers breathtaking views, family-friendly fun and even just a hint of romance.” (http://www.yosemitepark.com/ice-skating.aspx) Head back to Mariposa in the evening and you can enjoy dinner at one of our fine dining establishments within walking distance of your room.
The Inn got a new fresh coat of paint this fall and she is ready for the new year!!! She is beautiful!! Our staff is ready to serve you. Looking forward to your visit to Mariposa and Yosemite National Park!!!
Merry Christmas to you all!
Randy and Patti
