The Cat

Let the snowcat do the work of hauling you and your gear so you have fresh legs for your ski tour. Our snowcat has a heated passenger cabin which comfortably seats 8. The snowcat is equipped with ski racks on the back and gear storage inside. We include 5-gallons of drinking water for your use at the yurt. When Virginia Lakes Road is closed for the season we will meet you at Conway Summit and take care of the rest.

The Yurt

Founded in 2012, High Sierra Snowcat and Yurt lodging is located in the heart of the Sierra Nevada. The “ski in ski out” Hut concept was developed from the passion of skiing and to establish safe and affordable backcountry lodging on the “East Side”.

For many years the world over, mountain huts have sheltered backcountry travelers such as skiers, horse packers, and mountaineers. In Europe, hundreds of huts hang from mountainsides, and many have been in use for over a century. Likewise, mountain huts are a noble tradition in Canada and the northeast United States.
