Backcountry enthusiast of all types will be able to reserve the yurt in advance for self-guided trips. Minimum reservation includes reserving the entire yurt for as many nights as they would like limited to Monday-Thursday nights during peak season. Clients will have access to the yurt as early as 9:00am on the day of the first night’s booking. The morning of check out, groups are asked to have the yurt cleaned and their non-skiing gear packed and stored in one area of the yurt if the group is wanting to get a few more last ski runs in before heading back to their vehicles. This allows a new group to be able to drop off their gear before also heading out for a day of ski touring.
The yurt can be accessed from Virginia Lakes Road or Green Creek Rd., which includes a 5 mile or 10 mile approach depending on which access area is chosen to approach from. Once a party books the yurt a detailed map, forest use guidelines, “care of the yurt” guide, and waivers will be sent to them so that they can better plan for their trip. High Sierra Snowcat & Yurt staff are always available to answer questions and provide information to all users.
