Snow and Wind

Colorado Yurt Snow and Wind Packages

Different climates demand different engineering requirements. High elevation, high snowfall or high wind areas call for a different approach than tropical climates where high rainfall and hot temperatures determine the design elements of a yurt. In some cases a simple yurt structure with no engineering elements may be appropriate. Our experienced staff can help you decide which options are necessary in your situation.
