 Winter in Bodie

Snow is falling in them there Bodie Hills!  Winter is here and the beauty of snow covered mountains is a sight to behold.  Seeing the ghost town of Bodie covered in snow is also a vision you will not soon forget, but it is not as easy as hopping in your car and driving up to Bodie for a look.  The Bodie road is closed during the winter and that means you may have to walk, ski or snowmobile up to 13 miles to reach snow-bound Bodie.  Yep, it can be quite an adventure to visit Bodie during the winter - and a dangerous one at that.  Be prepared for winter travel if you visit the Eastern Sierras during the winter; that means carrying chains and warm clothing, and checking the weather forecast and road conditions before you start out.  Give yourself plenty of time, make sure your equipment is in good working order and know your physical limits.  Remember when the sun goes down during the winter, so does the temperature - fast!  The park is open 9am - 4pm during the fall and winter.  It is a good idea to call the park for the latest conditions at (760) 647-6445.  It is a rewarding experience to visit Bodie during the winter, but only if you do so safely.
