Overnight Guided Backcountry Ski Touring

Think full immersion therapy. It's hard to compete with the wilderness feel of a multi-day guided trip deep into the mountains of Utah in winter. Virgin snow abounds and simply speaking, it is wild. Yurt life is good too; it's cozy and it's a step back in time away from the ever-present ills of society. Life slows down and thoughts of powder turns and what is for dinner become the only thoughts that matter. A yurt trip is a skiers paradise and the ultimate disconnect, but it's the people that come together in the process, filling the air with childish exuberance that make these trips so memorable for years to come.

We offer multi-day, yurt-based ski touring trips in the Uinta and Bear River Ranges. Our most comfortable trips start at 4 days/3 nights. This allows for a day to get in to the yurt to get established on the front end of the trip and a day to get out on the back, with two full days of skiing in the middle. Shorter trips are possible but it can be easy to feel rushed considering the logistics involved. Once there, you will not want to leave!

All trips are all-inclusive and guided as private groups in privately booked yurts. In general, trips are more affordable per person with more people. On most trips it is possible to hire a porter to help carry in gear to keep pack weight down. The use of a snowmobile or tracked vehicle for egress is also possible in some instances.


Uinta Mountains Yurt Trip

The Boundary Creek Yurt serves as a fantastic base for overnight ski touring trips. In a designated non motorized portion of the Uinta Mountains the yurt is well positioned for skiing with north facing glades right out the front door. Terrain is extensive and numerous options for longer tours abound. We start the trip by riding in an over snow vehicle to the edge of a motorized perimeter and then skin the remaining two miles to the Yurt. From there, skiing awaits!
