John and Mary are organizing a winter Murray Group trip to Yosemite this year. We'll be staying in heated cabins in Yosemite valley. This will be a fun and casual trip for all group members, there will be no special skills or special gear required.

Snowshoes, skis (downhill and cross country), and snowboards are available for rent at Yosemite for those in the group desiring to take part in such activities.

For dinners there is a local cafe where we can apparently get pizza and other food items. The following items are suggested for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Please let John know if you want anything added to this list

  • Breakfasts: bagels, cream cheese, butter, orange juice, oatmeal (variety of flavors), coffee!

There is supposed to be an eating area at Curry Village with a toaster and microwave, so we should be able to toast the bread and warm things.
