Pioneer Yurt- Idaho

Cobb elevation 11,522

ski out the door

Greetings from the snowy Pioneer Mountains in Central Idaho! What was going to be ski mountaineering trip turned into a spring powder fest! We were blessed with over 2 feet of fresh! The reactive new snow forced us to lower angle and tree skiing. We still received face shots all day long! Two full days of wearing your hood while touring. The Alagna jacket and pants kept me total warm and dry while it was totally nuking. I was skiing with the guides from Sun Valley Trekking who also own the yurt. The new Pio Yurt is 24 feet and is laid out. I look forward to returning soon to ski some amazing lines in this beautiful alpine setting with peaks up 12,000 feet. Check out for more info.
