Flat Mountain Yurt car trip

Loading Events

Join us for a 3-day, 2-night adventure to Flat Mountain Yurt, Cumbres Pass, near Chama, 1-3 February 2019. We will leave Albuquerque Friday morning and return Sunday afternoon. This yurt has spectacular mountain views and local skiing options on the layover day. This is the same general mountain range as Wolf Creek, and traditionally has many feet of fresh snow. This is a back-pack like trip, more rustic than a hotel or hut, but easier to get to than a hut. Trail is class 2-3, not very technical but strenuous with four miles and a gain of 1000'. Trail is well marked. Breaking trail in several feet of snow is possible. Lots of tour and turn options on our layover day. No avalanche dangers on the trail in-out, but it exists off-trail near the yurt. You will need to bring clothes, food, and a sleeping bag. The yurt has a wood stove and cooking supplies. Accommodation cost is $70; food and transportation extra. Space is limited to 6 people. Contact Scott Mitchell for more information and to sign up.
