Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse yourself in the serene beauty of Whistler's backcountry. Nestled in the heart of the Coast Mountains, the AlpX Yurt offers a private retreat for outdoor enthusiasts seeking adventure and tranquility.

Summer Retreat

During the summer months, the AlpX Yurt becomes a secluded sanctuary amidst the alpine meadows high above the Pemberton valley. Surrounded by breathtaking views and pristine wilderness, guests can indulge in the simple pleasures of outdoor living. From leisurely hikes to scenic picnics, there's no shortage of activities to enjoy in this idyllic setting. The yurt offers a peaceful escape where you can savor delicious meals with a spectacular view and explore the stunning Whistler & Pemberton backyard.

Winter Wonderland

In winter, the landscape transforms into a snowy wonderland, beckoning skiers and snowboarders to explore its slopes and powder-filled bowls. The ski touring terrain surrounding the yurt boasts vast alpine expanses with slopes of varying difficulties, suitable for intermediate to expert riders. Whether you're seeking adrenaline-pumping descents or serene backcountry bliss, the AlpX Yurt provides access to some of the most exhilarating terrain in the Coast Mountains. 

Amenities and Accommodations

Equipped with all the comforts of home, the AlpX Yurt offers a cozy retreat after a day of adventure. The yurt features six bunks, providing comfortable sleeping arrangements for guests. A propane heating system keeps the interior warm and inviting, while a two-burner cooktop allows for easy meal preparation. The open-concept layout includes a kitchen and dining area, perfect for gathering with friends and family. LED lighting illuminates the space, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Outside, a spacious patio offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, providing the perfect spot to relax and unwind.

What to Bring

When preparing for your stay at the AlpX Yurt, it's essential to pack carefully to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Here's a list of items to consider bringing along:

  1. Food & Beverage: While a 20L jug of water is provided, it's advisable to bring additional water to ensure an ample supply. Pack your food and beverages in sealed luggage or coolers, avoiding grocery bags. Coolers should not exceed 23" wide or 22" high, though length is not a concern.
  2. Sleeping Gear: A 3-season sleeping bag is recommended, as the internal temperature can be regulated by the available heater. Don't forget to bring a pillowcase to place over the existing vinyl pillow cover for sanitary reasons.
  3. Hut Slippers: Keep your feet warm and comfortable indoors with a pair of hut slippers.
  4. Outerwear: Be prepared for changing weather conditions by bringing appropriate outerwear, including jackets, pants, and layers to stay warm and dry.
  5. Portable Battery Bank: While charging is not possible at the yurt, a portable battery bank can keep your personal devices powered up during your stay. Consider bringing devices such as speakers, inReach devices, and cameras to capture your adventures.

Important Information

Guests must have previous ski-touring/splitboarding experience for winter bookings. Intermediate to expert skiers and snowboarders are recommended, as the terrain can be challenging. Avalanche safety gear is required, and guests are encouraged to take a refresher course if needed. The minimum age requirement is 15+.
