Skier’s Paradise: Backcountry Hut & Yurt Destinations

Maximize your winter fun with a backcountry basecamp where you can spend all day skiing or snowshoeing, and all evening lounging by the fire.

Bryant Cabin
Mansfield State Forest, VT
Score a rustic bargain.

What this 180-square-foot Green Mountain getaway lacks in amenities (no lights, water, or outhouse), it compensates for with classic Vermont charm, from its silvered wooden walls and claw-footed woodstove to its ladder-accessed loft, which sleeps six. From the Nordic center, ski or snowshoe one mile and gain 700 feet northeast to the cabin, nestled in a birch-spruce forest at 2,690 feet. At your doorstep lies a classic, rugged 9.4-mile section of the 300-mile-long cross-country Catamount Trail, plus 6,000 acres of endangered backcountry glades and gorges, for which the Vermont Land Trust must raise $1 million by March 2013 in order to protect indefinitely. $75/night; Bolton Valley Nordic Center (; 802-434-6876)
