Idaho yurts, USA

If you’re fed up with overcrowded, built up, boozy party town ski resorts, Idaho’s back country may provide the remedy you’re looking for. Permanent buildings are banned in some of the most breathtaking regions of the state, resulting in the seasonal erection of temporary structures such as Mongolian-style yurts.

Based in the untouched surroundings of the mountainous Gem State, these yurts provide basic accommodation with fully fitted kitchens and, if you’re lucky, a wood-fired hot tub or sauna. In addition to loud bars and crowded slopes, these holidays also lack any form of ski lift, meaning that guests must come equipped with the energy and willingness required for a very long and steep climb!
