Quick Facts

Recycling, Trash/Litter Receptacles

View Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and the Yosemite High Country from one of the most breathtaking sites in the Sierra Nevada region, from the Glacier Point Ski Hut.

A 10.5-mile cross-country ski trip from Badger Pass Ski Area, on groomed terrain, will bring you to this rustic accommodation. Experienced cross-country skiers can do the entire round-trip in 4 to 5 hours, however, many guests like to explore Glacier Point longer and stay at Glacier Point Ski Hut overnight. Children must be at least 14 years old and accompanied by an adult to stay at Glacier Point Ski Hut. Reservations are required, and the Hut is only open in the winter.

Inside the Glacier Point Ski Hut, you'll find a charming dining room and rustic accommodations that include:

Comfortable Sofas
Woodstove
Restrooms
Large bunk bed area that sleeps up to 20 people in a single room.
