Rock Springs Yurt at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
For an unforgettable mountain experience, spend a night slopeside at the rustic Rock Springs Yurt. Share the memory with your closest friends and family, led by a knowledgeable guide. The overnight adventure includes a private tour to the yurt's secluded backcountry site in the Bridger Teton National Forest and a fully-outfitted stay, from the hot drinks greeting you upon arrival to the gourmet meals prepared by the yurtmeister and the cozy bunks guaranteeing a sound night's sleep.
The yurt, located at the base of Rock Springs Canyon, is accessible from the top or bottom Rock Springs backcountry gates, or by a 1-2 hour snowshoe trek/alpine ski tour (not nordic) from the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Guests may enjoy Rock Springs' solitude even without staying the night: a gourmet lunch can be added to a guided backcountry tour, or an après-ski event can cap a long day of skiing or snowboarding.
