City Creek Peak is one of the most accessible mountains in the Tushars, even more so from the Puffer Lake Yurt, located below the mountain’s slopes. The yurt, which is run by Tushar Mountain Tours, is ideally situated in an open meadow above low-angle glades that spill down to Puffer Lake, and is only a ten-minute skin from the access ridge for an ascent of City Creek Peak. Of course you don’t have to use the yurt to ski good terrain that isn’t far from the trailhead, but booking the yurt will maximize your turn-to-time ratio. As for the peak, you’ll find everything from slide paths to the east to mellow bowls and glades to the west that you can lap from the yurt.
