Aaron was raised in western Montana since he was three years old. Mountain living was the norm growing up in a log cabin at the base of the Mission mountains. Through the years, mountain pursuits have played a great influence on professional, recreational, and family lifestyle. Aaron spends as much time as his busy life will allow skinning in the backcountry, riding his sled to the backcountry to go skinning, and riding his bike as fast as he possibly can. Aaron is a NOLS graduate, holds a BS in Geology, and is a professional scientific IT specialist. Jewel Basin Yurt is Aaron’s way of sharing the beauty and perfection of the mountains with anyone who needs a retreat into the mountains. It is also his way of having a personal yurt to get lost at, whenever it isn’t booked.
