Roger G and I are planning a visit in the snow to a yurt up in Cumbres Pass in southern CO. Most weekends are still available but the first part of February is nearly booked. Most of the yurts sleep up to six people. They are heated by woodstove and have beds and cooking gear. Most involve a hike of 3-5 miles to get there. Altitudes in the 10K to 11K range with about 1,000 feet of elevation gain on the trail.
If you are relatively sure of wanting to go, respond with a list of weekends when you can't go. 12/23-24 are possible but New Years is booked. We're talking about the period between 12/14 until the end of April but most likely before the middle of March.
To participate you will need to pay the fee up front, non-refundable. It will be in the $20-30 range per night per person.
Once I've determined the best weekend I'll notify all those who did not indicate unavailabilty for that weekend (or other two days)
For a description of the yurts go to: http://www.southwestnordiccenter.com/yurtaccomodations.htm
This will also be offered to a couple of other groups.
