killclimbz Eisman is pretty amazing and plush. Probably going back next year right before Christmas once again.

ShredLife i lived in a yurt in the woods for the first year of my life while my parents were serious hippies. genghis khan conquered most of the world with the yurt or "ger" (that and horses and bows and badass mongol hordes)...

my dad builds them and has a few in the backyard for equipment storage and one that was a "guest bedroom" that my stepbrother used to live in.

yurts are cool. backcountry snowboarding is cool.... you get the idea

mhaas The water source there was snowmelt so that might explain the sweet taste... Puppy Tea!! If it snowed in Utah this probably wouldn't be that big of an issue.

I checked out the Eisman hut. That thing is a mansion ! Really cool.

killclimbz It really depends on what your water source is. If you have a creek, no big deal about dogs. If it is snow melt, that is just gross. You are probably drinking dog feces and piss in your water...

mhaas Killz, that guy is nuts but props to him. I bet that beer tasted great. That sounds like on hell of a slog to get there. Our approach was half only half that.

We tried to get cute with weight and estimate exactly how much booze to bring. We guessed wrong and ran out on the last night. IMO Going green would be the better option, if that's your thing.

I don't know if it is allowed but someone brought a dog up there before us, The poor thing postholed through the skin track the whole way up.

killclimbz Dogs are not allowed at most huts. Since your water source is snow melt and most dogs like to pee in snow as soon as they walk out the door...

wrathfuldeity what about having the dog pull a wallmart plastic sled with said keg

killclimbz Fucking really nice mhaas. Really nice. I love hut/yurt trips. So much fun to be had all the way around.

The biggest pain is deciding what to bring to drink. We had a sicko on the Eisman hut trip this year that brought a full 5 gallon keg. 7 mile 2+k vert climb. It was a suffer fest to get there but damn if the riding isn't great.

I went on a yurt trip this weekend in the Bear River Range in Utah.

Me and 3 weirdo tele skiers essentially had an entire drainage to ourselves for 3 days. The yurt was in a cirque giving us really convenient access to a lot of
~1000 vertical foot medium angle slopes, which was good since literally every steep slope had slid during the last storm 2 weeks ago.

Here is an elusive picture of me actually doing some riding.

We had a good time riding stale but soft and fast recrystallized powder and facets. Its still a bit thin out there but enough to get the job done. Not bad for 2+weeks after that last snow.

This was my first time yurting and its something I definitely recommend. Its a really fun time.
