Specials help travelers enjoy winter in California 
 SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Calif., November 18, 2010—The Wuksachi Lodge, nestled in the center of Sequoia National Park, is the ideal place for Californians to enjoy winter snow without the typical ski resort congestion.

With the Sierra’s first major snowfall of the season expected this weekend, the Wuksachi Lodge is ready to provide fun for adventurers of all ages while showcasing all the best aspects of winter in California.

Wuksachi’s winter adventure package is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. Beginning at $125 per night, the package includes cross-country ski rentals for two so guests can explore the park’s glimmering Giant Forest or any number of well-marked ski trails that range in difficulty from beginner to challenging.


If you’d rather sip cocoa than sweat to warm up, the lodge’s winter snowshoe package might be a better fit. The package provides snowshoes for two and allows guests to sightsee at their own pace. Starting at $182, along with snowshoe rentals and overnight accommodations, this package also helps keep guests warm by giving them two keepsake thermoses full of hot cocoa.


If you plan on bringing the family, Wuksachi has you covered with its winter family fun package. People of all ages enjoy the snow and for the younger ones, this package includes a children’s sled that you can keep even after the kids are done zooming over fresh powder. Along with overnight accommodations, the package also includes snowshoe rentals for two adults and starts at just $136 per night (based on two adults and one child).



Wuksachi also designed a few packages with couples in mind. The winter sweet treat package makes sure you’ll stay warm while indoors, providing adults with hot cocoa, peppermint Schnapps and two Sequoia logo mugs upon check in, starting at just $137 per night. If romance is the reason for your visit, the winter romance package might suit you well. The package, starting at just $195, includes nightly accommodations, snowshoe rentals for two, a bottle of champagne with two Sequoia logo flutes and handmade truffles.

All of the packages are available until March 31, 2011, including over the holidays (rates will increase during peak travel periods), based on a first-come first-serve basis. Snow related packages are weather permitting and subject to availability. For more information and reservations, call 866-449-4902 or visit http://www.VisitSequoia.com.
