Yurt you say? The original Mongolian mobile home has gone high tech (especially since we added solar lighting). A yurt has much of the same feel as a cabin but all in one room. Originally a nomadic home, the yurt has been redesigned as an efficient all season shelter. Our 20’ diameter yurt sits at the base of Old Baldy and at the edge of the White River National Forest. A perfect location for back-country and telemark skiers, wildlife watching, or a summer family escape. Sitting at 8,500 feet, the yurt provides great views, serenity and access to some of the largest aspen trees in the world (just ¼ mile away).
The Old Baldy yurt sleeps six and is completely self-contained. It has a coal stove for heating and a propane stove for cooking. You’ll find the yurt equipped with pots, pans, dishes, a sink, pantry, a deck and a BBQ — not to mention an out-house.
Our yurt is 2 miles into the forest from the lodge. It is an intermediate level ski-in in the winter with approximately 800 feet of elevation gain. It is easily accessible in the summer by foot, horseback or 4-wheel drive vehicle.
Yurt rental is $70/night (double occupancy).
