Explore Tenaya Lodge's Seasons


Blanketed in snow, Yosemite and Tenaya Lodge transform into a winter wonderland that's perfect for families, couples, and friends alike.  Tenaya’s Ultimate Winter Fun Pass gives guests prime access to on-property recreation including morning and evening snowshoe hikes, ice skating, sledding, and archery for one low price. Nearby, families can hit the slopes at Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area at Badger Pass, which continues to be one of California’s best values for snow fun; Tenaya guests can receive a coupon for $10-off lift tickets. When adults need some downtime, Tenaya’s Ascent Spa is a warm respite featuring exceptional seasonal treatments specially created for those colder months.


Waterfalls, wildflowers, and exciting outdoor adventures await guests looking for an epic spring break experience.  As the snow melts, families often can enjoy fewer crowds and a spectacular show from Yosemite’s favorite waterfalls including Bridalveil Falls, Vernal Falls, and Yosemite Falls.  The spring season also promises a fabulous display of wildflowers at various elevations including poppies, dogwoods, and redbuds.  What’s more, guests can once again enjoy activities such as mountain biking, archery, climbing wall, and fly-fishing.


When the temperatures start to heat up, so does the fun at Tenaya Lodge.  Slated for late summer 2018, a new, on-property zipline course will take guests on high-flying adventures through the Sierra National Forest.  Tenaya’s Unlimited Summer Fun Pass returns and allows guests to enjoy the resort’s must-do activities including guided hikes, archery, climbing wall, and bike rentals for one low price.  Summerdale BBQ, an old-west themed resort tradition and highlight of summer, runs mid-June through Labor Day weekend and includes a fun evening around the campfire with delicious eats, storytelling, activities, and live entertainment.

Fall and Holidays

As summer crowds head back to school and work, fall is a prime time for peaceful adventures.  From wellness retreats to special menus, the fall season at Tenaya is a cozy experience.  During the holidays, Tenaya becomes a winter wonder lodge of family fun that includes dinner with Santa, epic gingerbread house workshops, sleigh rides, ornament decorating, and a 35-foot holiday tree, the largest in California’s Central Valley.
