Wuksachi Lodge, built in 1999, is the newest of the lodges in the Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. As a winter vacation, we enjoyed hiking through Sequoia's Giant Forest and snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on local trails. We were impressed by the cleared and sanded paths after a snowstorm and the complimentary snow-chain installation. The choice and quality of the food in the restaurant were way above our expectations.
