The Winter Season
To get a true sense of the harsh conditions Bodie experiences - visit during the winter - but be prepared!
Winter travel in the Bodie Hills can be hazardous, but it can also be very rewarding. During the winter the road to Bodie may be closed to vehicle traffic, and may only be accessible by over-snow equipment such as skis or snowmobile, but the scenic beauty and spiritual silence can be awe inspiring! You may also experience firsthand what harsh winters in the Bodie Hills are like, and appreciate what the remaining buildings and equipment of this historic mining district must endure.

Bodie Calendar Contest
Thank you to all the photographers who submitted photos of Bodie. There were many excellent images that were truly works of photographic art. It is difficult to pick only twelve for the months of the calendar, but we should have the selection completed soon.
