UTAH YURT SKIING TOURS
Overnight, Guided Backcountry Yurt Ski Trips
Think full-immersion therapy. Experience the wonders of the wilderness on a multi-day, guided trip deep into Utah’s winter mountains. Virgin snow abounds and it is wild! Cozy yurt life is a welcome step back in time; it is removed from the ever-present demands of society. A yurt trip is a skiers’ paradise and the ultimate disconnect. Life slows down and thoughts of powder turns and what’s for dinner become the only thoughts that matter. Skiers come together in the process and fill the yurt and the mountain surrounds with childish exuberance. These are exceedingly memorable trips.
We offer multi-day, yurt-based ski touring trips in the Uinta and Bear River Ranges. Our most comfortable trip is 4 days/3 nights. This allows for a day to travel to the yurt and get established on the front end of the trip; a day to get out on the back end of the trip; and two full days of glorious skiing in the middle. Shorter trips are possible; however, it might feel rushed because of all the logistics involved. Regardless of the trip’s duration, 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 with more people since they are calculated on a per-person basis. On most trips, it is possible to hire a porter to help carry gear to keep individual pack weight down. The use of a snowmobile or tracked vehicle for egress is also possible on some trips.
Utah Yurt Trip - Ski Touring
We utilize a few different yurts in Northern Utah including the Bunchgrass Yurt and Steam Mill Yurt in the Bear River Range as well as the Boundary Creek Yurt in the Uinta Mountains. All of these options provide fantastic basecamps for overnight ski touring trips and sit within a designated non-motorized use areas. Beautiful, north facing glades are right out the front door of all the yurts. Terrain is extensive and there are numerous options to accommodate for tangible snow stability. Generally speaking, the Bear River Range skis at its best in January and February (similar to the Wasatch), while the Uintas shine brightest in February and March (the Uinta Mountains have a more continental snowpack).
