Yellowstone Adventures & Canyon Skiers Yurt Camp

Mon, Oct  18, 2010 - By Sara Cockrell

Come join me & 3 Detroit SOLAR Club members on a Yellowstone Expedition. We will be there 8 days & 7 nights, Sunday 1/23 through Sunday 1/30. They have Sun-Thurs & Thurs-Sun trips, too, and there is space still for 6 more guests during our week. Come experience all 4 hydrothermal features in winter: geysers, hot springs, mudpots & fumaroles. Enjoy guided ski trips with a 1:4 ratio for all skiing abilities, views of wildlife, sunsets, sunrises, and starlit nights. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
