“The two yurts, they got completely nuked,” Sun Valley Trekking Co-owner Joe St. Onge says about their Smoky Mountain Coyote Yurts, which were burned in Idaho’s Beaver Creek Wildfire over the summer. But the yurts have been resurrected. “I headed straight there after the Teton season wound down and spent the last two weeks with Joe and his crew rebuilding Coyote,” says guide Jesse Williams. “It’s a classic crisis/opportunity: the ‘burn skiing’ in those charred forests is really going to be off the hook.”
