  • Norway Flats Yurt

    The Utah Nordic Alliance (TUNA) has a yurt in the Western Uinta mountains. It is about an hour from Salt Lake to the trailhead, or 30 minutes form Park City. The ski in is 3 miles of gentle uphill. While it doesn't rival a British Columbia hut, it makes for a very nice and very convenient weekend for Utah folks.

    This Sunday a group went out for a day trip, to see how to get there (most are going to be first time users this winter). The snow deeper than expected, with almost 2 feet of soft settled snow up at the yurt.

    I am glad we went up; no one has used the yurt this winter and the snow load on the roof was more than I expected.

    This is from a few years ago; the snow can get deep up there. Hope this winter is like this.

    This is my son from a few years ago, when he first started to tele. Nice conditions to learn in.

      Nice. It's really quite awesome how many backcountry ski huts there are in the US; many of them little known........and many quite rustic.

        It is a small yurt; 16 foot diameter. Four up and down bunks, so sleeps 8. Wood stove, propane cook stove. Wood floor. Lots of "character."
