Southern Colorado-Cumbres Pass
SNC has four yurts near the southeastern end of the San Juan Wilderness, by Cumbres Pass,Co. This area is a cross-country skiers paradise with terrain for all skill levels of skiers. Access to the yurts is along well marked trails with no Avalanche danger. From the yurts, extended touring and telemark terrain is available. Yurt to Yurt skiing is also an option. Both Flat Mountain and Trujillo Meadows Yurts share the same trailhead making yurt to yurt tours particularily easy.

|The Southwest Nordic Center operates two separate
winter backcountry yurt systems.Our original system has four yurts at

Valley in northern New Mexico.
Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
Our newest yurt , the Bull of the Woods Yurt, is two miles from Taos Ski Valley (9,300') at the Bull of the Woods Meadow(10,800). This yurt allows backcountry skiers, boarders and snowshoers access to world class terrain. The yurt lies at the low point along the ridge between Wheeler Peak(13,161') and Gold Hill(12,700'). One may tour along this ridge into the high alpine terrain and spectacular scenery. Adrenaline junkies will want to take advantage of the extended verticals to be had off of this ridge. There is awesome spring skiing accessible from this yurt.
