FRIENDLY and the views are amazing.
Not too challenging, but not everyone needs/wants that.

Full review

I am biased because my family has enjoyed Badger Pass since the 1960’s, but recent visits remind me why we love it so much. The staff are all so friendly and I think that feeling rubs off on the guests. Nowhere do I get more smiles from strangers. Maybe it’s because we’re all having a great day in YOSEMITE! Beginners can take advantage of a discounted ticket price for lower lifts only. We experienced a less than 2 minute wait time on all lifts. Yes, it’s pricey to stay in Yosemite Valley. Check out Mariposa, Wawona, Fish Camp, or Oakhurst. A farther drive, but you might discover a cool mountain town to enjoy as well.
