Sequoia Sledding & Snow Play

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 in Sequoia National Park

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 Lodgepole Market for rentals.

Big Stump in Kings Canyon National Park

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, plus 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 inside John Muir Lodge.
