CCRA's 106th ANNUAL CONVENTION
OCTOBER 7 - 10, 2016
Tenaya Lodge @ Yosemite

Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite is a majestic Sierra resort set at the national park's soaring South Gate, with all-season recreation ranging from hiking, biking, swimming, skating and skiing, to the alpine serenity of the new Ascent Spa at Tenaya Lodge.

It's all here. Tenaya Lodge offers authentic Yosemite resort lodging that beckons you to escape, stay, play, feel, learn, wonder. 

The California Court Reporters Association invites you to join us in this spectacular setting and take part in CCRA’s 106th Annual Convention being held at the Tenaya Lodge, Columbus Day weekend, October 7 - 10, 2016.
 
Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite is located 62 miles north of Fresno International Airport (FAT) on California State Highway 41 and 2 miles from the south entrance to Yosemite. The property is sold out but we have found additional lodging in the surrounding  area. Click here for the list.
