3 of 15

The Yosemite Winter Club flooded an unused parking lot to create a makeshift skating rink back in 1928, and it’s since become a cherished park tradition. Half Dome and Glacier Point loom above, while an outdoor fire pit and warming hut keep skaters going. And ice skating is just the warm-up; Yosemite also offers downhill and cross-country skiing, as well as snowshoeing, ice climbing, sledding, sleigh rides, and even fishing.

Admission is $9.50 for adults, $8.50 for children, not including skate rental. Through early March 2012. yosemitepark.com
