Feb 2006 Backcountry Skiing — Yurt Converts
A New Holiday Experience
You have got to love adventures. They are like a time machines — in a week-end you live a week.
Six of us got out of Boston around 8 am on Friday and headed to a remote part of Northern New Hampshire. Fairly simple plan: 5 miles ski in, 2 nights staying in a Mongolian influenced tent-like semi-permenant wilderness structure (aka the yurt ), and a 5 mile ski out. Not exactly big backcountry hardcore Colorado style, but still getting out there. And what a great way to enjoy the mountains.
