Per the USU Vaccine Requirement, all yurt users must be fully vaccinated.
The OP manages a Mongolian-style yurt. The yurt is located up Blind Hollow, a short drive from campus up Logan Canyon in the Bear River Range. The yurt is maintained with USU student fees which means students get priority access on weekends and a discounted rental rate. To reserve a weekend at the yurt, refer to the reservation calendar for available dates and call or visit the OP to make your reservation.
Student Yurt Hosts
Outdoor Programs hires students as yurt hosts for each winter season. Yurt hosts meet with groups before they rent the yurt and check the condition of the yurt in between rentals. Yurt host positions are posted and must be applied for, on Aggie Handshake in October. For more information on becoming a yurt host, contact Dan Galliher at 435-797-5525.
