Winter backpacking in Yosemite

Postby averyriver » Thu Oct 16, 2014 3:29 pm

I'd like to plan a week long backpacking trip in Yosemite mid November. I have zero experience backpacking in the snow if there'll be any. I just finished the JMT a month ago and am wondering what kind of winter upgrades I'll need? And looking for any suggestions on trails or loops through the park that would be good mid November?? Thanks

Zero experience? winter is a bad time to be a winter newbie in the wilderness for a week. Don't do it without an experienced winter backpacker. Last year we had very little snow but people made horribly bad assumptions and search and rescue was very busy.
