Are Cabins in Yosemite Available Year-Round?

Yosemite is open year-round and most cabins in Yosemite continue to take bookings during the winter season. However, certain roads into the park close during snow-prone months and it’s important to check road conditions in advance of your trip. In general, 4WD and snow tires or chains are requirements for winter visits. You can find more information on the NPS website.
