During winter season (when there is snow on the ground) guests are required to have a valid AZNV trail pass and skis or snowshoes on trails. Trail passes can be purchased at the Lodge upon your arrival.
Winter Season (November 23rd–April 2nd)
The 12’ front country yurts are our most accessible yurt camping option. With vehicle access there is no hiking or skiing required to reach the yurts and they are still located right on a multi-use trail. Each yurt is equipped with a woodstove and sleeping pads that make them the perfect yurt camping experience for two. Up to four people can be accommodated. The Lodge is located just yards away at the base of the 35-mile trail system of the Nordic Village.
