Sequoia Snow Play
Northern California Snow Play Options
Snow changes everything. Hills become sledding runs, sticks turn into snowman arms, snow angels appear and snowballs fly!
Northern California snow play doesn’t get better than this! Set on the Sierra’s snowy western slope, Sequoia & Kings Canyon fills up with the white fluffy stuff every winter, to the delight of visitors.
Wolverton Meadow is Sequoia National Park’s go-to snow playground, with a large snow play area, perfect for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding. Located two miles north of the General Sherman Tree, at 7,250-foot elevation, Wolverton is a fun and popular place all year round, but it’s on an entirely new level in the wintertime.
There’s no admission charge to Wolverton’s snow play and sledding area. Visit the Wuksachi Lodge® retail and ski shop for equipment rentals, including Monster Dino™ snowshoes that will make your kids' Sequoia snow play even more fun!
In neighboring Kings Canyon, the Big Stump snow play area is a fun hub with sledding hills and more. At Grant Grove, national park rangers offer snowshoe nature walks, naturalist and evening programs. Walks average about two hours and allow you access into areas where you'd otherwise sink to your hips in snow. In the evening, kick up your feet and cozy up to the fireplace in the John Muir Lodge.
