The Montgomery Pass Yurts are located about halfway up the west side of Montgomery Pass, which opens up a whole new area to explore for intermediate and advanced skiers. Hikers and mountain bikers will also enjoy the access to the Medicine Bow Peaks - just 3 miles to Montgomery Pass from the yurts! The two yurts share a large clearing, but are separated by a stand of trees. Although each yurt is rented individually, it's a great site for larger groups - or a chance to meet new folks!

***Please note that the access road from County Road 41/Bockman Rd to the yurts is opened/closed due to weather accessibility, by the Parks. There is not a set day for this to occur. Refunds WILL NOT be given for bookings in transition seasons. Just because it is driveable in October/November and again in May/June does not mean the summer acess road will be open. PLEASE CHECK THE RESOURCES PAGE FOR SUMMER ACCESS ROAD OPEN/CLOSURES.***

Please check the weather and road conditions on the resources page for the most up to date information before your stay.

Pets are permitted at all Never Summer Yurts only from June-September.

Lower Montgomery Pass Yurt

This yurt features breathtaking views of the Medicine Bow and the Never Summer mountain ranges from the front deck. Diamond Peak, Nokhu Crags, Mt. Richtoffen and Seven Utes form the backdrop for your skiing, mountain biking or hiking adventure.

Upper Montgomery Pass Yurt

Upper Montgomery Pass Yurt features sunsets over the Zirkels with the Medicine Bow mountains at your elbow - what a way to end the day! Clark Peak is so close you can almost touch it, and the North Park Basin stretches out far below you. There is challenging ski terrain in all directions, and the bike ride back down is a fun one!!
