DNC renews deal to service park

Union Democrat staff

The National Park Service has renewed its contract with DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite Inc. to provide visitor services in Yosemite National Park through Jan. 31, 2015.

The previous contract extension expired Sept. 30, with the renewal beginning Oct. 1.

DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite Inc. provides hotel, food and beverage, lodging, retail and other services within the park. Hotels include the Ahwahnee, Yosemite Lodge and Wawona Hotel.

Visitor services include raft rentals on the Merced River, the Yosemite Mountaineering School, and horse and mule rides in Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows and Wawona.

The contact continuation was deemed necessary to ensure there is no disruption of visitor services, said Don Neubacher, park superintendent.

The provisions of the current contract will not change.

DNC Parks and Resorts, part of the Delaware North Companies, was founded in 1992 to manage visitor services in Yosemite National Park. It has since grown to include other national parks, state parks, cultural attractions and 10 destination resorts in three countries.

Delaware North, with global headquarters in Buffalo, N.Y., has about 55,000 employees and more than $2 billion in annual revenue.
