Is there ski terrain around the yurt or is it best to travel up towards Camp Misery trail-head and above?

Depending on snow conditions you can find several options just above and near the yurt. There are rare occasions where you can actually ski below the yurt but again, it’s condition dependent. The area just up the road and above the yurt is commonly referred to as the “Checkerboard” and yields excellent tree skiing- that is your closest opportunity for some turns.

As you enter the Camp Misery area there are more options as you may know. Making the quick jaunt over the ridge will also increase your possibilities for finding even more terrain like Mount Aeneas and other fun objectives.
