Two Unique Holiday Experiences

Gold Country Getaway

Does a Yosemite Holiday feel like the perfect way to get away with the family, except the thought of cold weather and knee-deep snow sends shivers down your spine? Yosemite Mariposa County’s Gold Country is the place for you! The elevations of foothill towns like Mariposa, Catheys Valley and Coulterville means the family can have a safe, relaxed and easy holiday experience without the snowpack of the High Sierra. Plus, Yosemite Valley is just a short drive away on the low-elevation Highway 140, historically referred to as the “All-Weather Highway”. Read More

High Sierra Holiday

Snow dusted mountain peaks and the crunch of snow below your feet. Snow falling outside the window of your cabin warmed by a crackling fire. Cups of hot cocoa for the kids and maybe a hot toddy for mom and dad? With great lodges, cozy cabins, outdoor adventure and, of course, the beautiful scenery of Yosemite National Park just down the road, a High Sierra Holiday is just the escape your family needs this holiday season after a long and hectic year.
