Castle Peak Yurt Professional Review and Guide

"The Castle Peak Yurt, operated by White Pine Touring in Park City; is my favorite winter shelter in all of Utah. On the surface it looks just like any other Utah yurt, but with one exception: it has a wood-fired sauna. While the ability to ease your tired muscles in a sauna is reason enough to book a trip to the yurt, the mountains that surround the place aren’t half bad either. Two peaks with skiable terrain lie a short day tour north of the yurt—Castle Peak and a mountain known only as Duke. Both rise above 10,000 feet and offer short but steep lines on northwest- and southeast-facing aspects. Spring is the best time to visit, as the Uinta Mountains have a fussy snow-pack and anything above tree line is highly avalanche prone here. But if you happen
to plan a trip to Castle Peak during high avalanche danger, you can always play it safe
and hang out in the sauna."
