Description

Looking for a winter destination for the whole family? You’ll find it at the Twin Yurts of Boulder Mountains. These two connected yurts provide many opportunities for winter fun for guests of all ages and ability levels. Resting at the foot of Butterfield Mountain and looking out at the gloriously rugged Boulder mountains in Idaho’s Smoky Mountain Range, the yurts offer numerous winter recreation opportunities from track skiing to downhill runs. The nearby Harriman Trail offers 30 kilometers of perfectly groomed track skiing for cross-country enthusiasts, while the meadows surrounding the yurts and the nearby ridges provide a wonderful landscape for fun (and easy-going) touring. For those seeking a date with speed, downhill runs with powder turns can be found on Ice-Cream Ridge just above the yurts. Skiing or snowshoeing isn’t your idea of a perfect vacation? Then hit the sledding hill just outside the yurts!

Each yurt has a wood stove to keep guests cozy in the cold winter months. Only one yurt has the kitchen with three burner stove. The sink and wash station are in the annex that connects the two yurts. Guests may also use a charcoal grill that sits outside. Bring ingredients for fondue to make this an even more memorable occasion! What’s better than après ski fondue? Maybe some s’mores before bedtime, knowing you have another day of touring, downhill, or cross-country skiing in Idaho’s glorious Boulder Mountains ahead of you.

*NOTE: Yurt may be rented privately or shared with other groups. Open dates on the calendar may have some spaces already reserved. Please inquire about availability. Blocked dates indicate the hut is fully booked. A party of eight constitutes a private rental. See Property Policies for info about Private Rentals vs. Sharing.

Open October through early May, depending on the weather.
