Location + Surroundings

This charming and secluded property in Taos, New Mexico, boasts two separate winter yurt systems. The first is situated in the southeastern end of the San Juan Mountains, near Cumbres Pass in Southern Colorado. The second system has one larger yurt above Taos Ski Valley in northern New Mexico.

The system in Southern Colorado is open only during winter and is nestled amidst breathtakingly gorgeous mountain terrain over 10,000 feet above sea level. Snowshoers and hikers will find access to abundant mountain scenery and trails, and skiers will find themselves in a true winter wonderland. Guests will have access to clearly marked trails that make it easy to explore the area or even ski from yurt to yurt. In the nearby town Antonito, guests can indulge at one of the several bars or restaurants, take a scenic railroad excursion, or explore the Conejos County Museum. Guests will also be within driving distance of Colorado's Great Sand Dunes and Colorado Gators Reptile Park.

The second system, situated just two miles from Taos Ski Valley, is an equally ideal spot for skiers and explorers. This property has excitement to offer-year round, from snow sports in the winter to hiking in the spring and summer. Hikers, backcountry skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers will have easy access to world-class terrain from the yurts on this property. The ridge offers spectacular views of the surrounding alpine landscape, as well as extended verticals to be had by adventurous guests. During warmer months, this property transforms to reveal an abundance of wildlife, foliage, and stunning scenery.

Activities

  • Winter sports
  • Wildlife watching

Snow sports and activities are undoubtedly the main attraction for glampers in these scenic yurts nestled in the mountains. Guests will have direct access to world-class skiing at both sites, including the Taos Ski Valley. During winter, glampers can try their hand at mastering the trails by snowboarding, skiing, and snowshoeing. There are endless possibilities for outdoor adventure, and these modern yurts are the perfect place to call home afterward. Guests can warm up by the wood fireplace, play games with the family around the table or on the throws, or even have a friendly snowball fight!

As the snow melts, flowers bloom, wildlife emerges, and the mountains offer stunning hiking and biking trails. Guests seeking a break from outdoor activities can easily visit a nearby town. The Colorado system is near Antonito, where guests can indulge at one of the several bars or restaurants, take a scenic railroad excursion, or explore the Conejos County Museum. The New Mexico property is within driving distance of Taos, where guests will find an abundance of culture, from locally crafted goods to exceptional art and dining.
