Backcountry Skiing — Yurt Converts

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.

And we had Bugogi, Korean barbeque pan and all.  Thank you Mr. Castell .  Who’d a thunk it.
Great people and great fun.
