Complete with a propane stove, solar powered energy for lights and charging electronics, Wi-Fi, and other creature comforts, a night in the Ruby High Yurt most certainly elevates your time in the Rubies.
Sleeping at nearly 10,000 feet makes for an uncommon adventure, but getting to the Ruby High Yurt is an excursion in itself. You can get there a few ways: hiking up 3,000′ over the course of three miles — solo or with a guide — or taking the express route via helicopter or snowcat. No matter how you get in, it’s undoubtedly worth it.
