Ski. Laugh. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

No group? No problem! Enjoy a fully guided, catered yurt trip with no strings attached--no minimum group size, no planning, and no stress. Just bring yourself and an appetite for the backcountry, and we'll take care of the rest. At one of Big Sky Backcountry Guides' Tour Weeks, it's all about enjoying fresh snow, great food, new friends, and peak experiences.

And with the 2018/19 season marking Bell Lake Yurt's 10-year anniversary, we're discounting ALL Tour Week sessions 10% off normal guided rates! It's our way of saying "Thank You!"

Over four days and three nights, you'll meet a small group of other skiers from around the world, and experience the amazing social tradition of European huts where mountain people meet to ski, eat, and relax high above the everyday rat race--deep in the Montana backcountry.

Two private guides ensure flexibility--during the day we can ski together or split into two groups based on ability and goals. And after surfing powder all day, the fun continues with uniquely Montana cuisine such as bison curry and elk bolognese. Enjoy a glass of wine while the woodstove crackles, play a game with new friends, or curl up on a memory foam mattress and take in the stars through the yurt's 5-foot diameter skylight. Our philosophy is that every element of your trip should combine to produce an experience you'll never forget.

I was completely blown away by the whole experience but the service and engagement from our guides was beyond EXCELLENT.
— Mike K., 2017 Tour Week
