Winter Classes at Montana Backcountry Yurts
Yurt-based classes are all-inclusive at either YurtSki or the Big Belt Hut. We provide lodging, meals, and all course-materials, see our suggested course packing list for what you should bring.
Need to rent gear for a class?
Visit MT Ski Tech in Missoula ($229 for skis, boots, beacon, shovel, and probe when you tell them you're taking a class with YurtSki!) Or head to Last Best Ski & Paddle for Black Crow AT skis or Weston Splitboards with Spark bindings (beacons, shovels, probes available, too).
