A Weekend Cabin Option

So, you finally threw down for a plot of land and you want to set up a temporary shelter while you’re figuring out where to put that foundation. Yurts have a certain steezy Asian vibe that’s impossible to replicate, but they ain’t cheap. Barebones safari tents, created by the same folks who do Goal Zero solar generators and batteries, on the other hand, are closer within reach: $2,000 for a 120-square-foot, aluminum-framed nylon shelter.

Tent camping in the winter at Yellowstone

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — A zephyr lifted ice crystals from the tops of snow-covered fir trees growing up the southern slope of Dunraven Peak in Yellowstone National Park. As the millions of crystals floated above the dense stand of trees, the warm light from the low-hanging January sun caught the crystals and seemed to transform them into gold dust particles that glittered the clear blue sky.

“Amazing,” Audrey Gehlhausen, a three-year guide for Yellowstone Expeditions, said before skiing on through the dense trees and powder.

When you talk to people who have spent time in Yellowstone National Park during the winter, they often use words like “amazing,” “wondrous” and “magical.”

Yellowstone Expeditions owner Arden Bailey has been guiding people into the park from West Yellowstone during the winter for 31 years. He operates the only tent-camping company in operation in Yellowstone.
