Jackson Hole, Wyo.
“Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s yurt surpasses any that I’ve ever seen,” said Dina Mishev in The Washington Post. Like other stand-alone ski lodgings of its kind, it’s just a bare-bones structure, but it’s located on a picturesque ridge that you can get to on your skis, rather than by hiking through deep snow. The only toilet is in an outhouse, but there’s a wood-burning stove, a kitchen, and best of all, a “yurtmeister”—who does all the cleaning, arranges a menu for your meals, and will have dinner ready when you return from a long day of skiing. jacksonhole.com/yurt.html; $425 for up to 8 people
