Janet Hoffmann : Tuolumne Meadows
The journey in to Tuolumne Meadows in winter is a long slog but worth it for spectacular scenery and some fun skiing when conditions are good. Our trip last spring was had a good mix of snow conditions for some wonderful skiing. Come see the beauty of Tuolumne Meadows and the surrounding mountains in winter at our December meeting. Also hear about the line-up of trips planned for the coming season.
