Ski the Boundary Waters'(BWCA) longest tracked cross country ski trail - the Banadad Ski Trail, staying overnight in yurts, a modern secluded cabin or bed and breakfast guesthouse. The Tall Pines Yurt, the Little Ollie Lake Secluded Cabin and Poplar Creek Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast are at the Banadad's eastern trailhead. Over four miles of snowshoe trails are also located at the Banadad's eastern trailhead. The Croft Yurt and Olga Hut are near the trail's center. While you ski the Banadad, your gear and food are transported for you and your car is shuttled to the end of the trail.
For centuries the people of the Mongolian plateau have found yurts to be comfortable, convivial dwellings. These round peaked-roofed, canvas-covered huts are warm and cozy. Each comes equipped with a wood-fired stove, dishes and utensils, pots and pans, LP gas stove with oven, prep area, dining area, sleeping bags and bunk beds. An outhouse is nearby. The Tall Pines yurt even has a wood fired Finnish sauna. Ahhh.
On the Banadad Ski Adventure the yurt is staffed by a "hut host" who tends to the cooking and camp chores. Great adventures call for great food. On this adventure you are served up some of the finest wilderness meals you are likely to find anywhere. The Tall Pines yurt specialty is the Mongolian fire pot- a delicious fondue of vegetables and meats cooked in a savory charcoal-heated broth, served with Oriental condiments.
You can also take advantage of the cost savings of the "Yurt on Your Own" package, where you provide your own meals and tend to the camp chores.
Price quoted is for two night un-hosted in two different yurts for two people and includes gear and car shuttles. Each extra person add $50.
Deluxe Yurt to Yurt trips with a hut host and meals depending upon size of party, start at $205/person for two nights.
Other trips from one to as many nights as you wanted quoted upon request.
