Heated tents in Half Dome Village turned off Memorial Day?

Hi everyone,

I'd be really grateful for some advice. We have a heated tent booked at Half Dome Village between 29th May and 1st June. We are travelling with our 10 month son, hence the reason for booking a heated tent.

I have just realised that the website advises the heat won't actually be turned on, because we are arriving the day after Memorial Day. Do you think this will be a problem? It seems that it will probably be cold in the night at this time. Do you think they would turn it back on if it is very cold?

Not keen to cancel the booking, as we won't get anywhere in the valley now and other surrounding areas are also very full.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I think the heat will be turned off.

I have tent camped with a baby, so here are my ideas (assuming that your baby does not tolerate cold very well.)

- Put your son in a "body coat" at night. Hooded is ideal. Here is an image of what I mean (also called baby overall coat.) https://goo.gl/images/5p2GnF

- Share a bed with him

- Have him sleep in a hat.

Thanks a lot. We have something similar so will run with it. Difficult to know just how cold it will be but I’m assuming if the heating is turned off then it can’t be that bad!?
