This in NOT an official event. It is an opportunity to visit Yosemite over the holiday period that is being offered by a private party who is also a member of the meetup. Contact Randy (see below) for details if this appeals to you.
I have an additional heated tent cabin in Yosemite's Curry Village available for this December 30 and 31; it's great for bringing in a new year!
If someone cares to avoid the usual NYE trappings this is a fine outlet. I've been doing this New Year introduction approach for a few years now, and being there has become one of the best ways to start the next year.
I can offer the heated tent cabin to anyone that wants it; I have 2 of them, and they're a give-away at $55/night.
My enjoyable approach is getting up there, taking in some hiking or snowshoeing when conditions permit, and then beginning the New Year at one of the greatest waterfalls in the world; at midnight it can be seen and felt and heard much more pleasantly than any party.
Circumstances are such that I'm going to Yosemite then, but without folks that I and they thought would be going along. There's no strings...I'd appreciate just getting paid for the reservation, to meet who wants it, and to look at what's needed to get there and back to the Bay Area
