The Lick Creek Summit Yurts are usually ready to go by early December and we operate until the road melts out in April. Come join us for a powder skiing experience you'll never forget! Located in the heart of Idaho's West Central Mountains, we have over 30,000 acres of untracked powder, literally, in our backyard. We have two yurts located on Lick Creek Summit (elevation 6930' ) and have miles of skiing just out the door. From mellow burned tree glades to the stuff most of us only dream of....the steep and deep....Lick Creek has it all! Access is by snowmobile, snowcat, or an easy eleven mile ski up a snow covered county road. We can accommodate your perfect ski vacation, from a day trip to a week. We offer yurt rentals, guide services, backcountry skiing and avalanche courses, as well as over the snow transport with state of the art snowmobiles and/or our biodeiesel fueled snowcat.
