Kelly Canyon in Idaho has been growing in the past couple of years, as they just opened a Skytrac triple chairlift last season. They are aiming to grow their summer guests by adding overnight lodging. Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that Kelly Canyon is aiming to add twenty-five glamping tents and domes to its resort. These would only be open during the off-season, with the sites having 200 square feet of indoor space, along with a one-fifty square foot porch. They will not contain utilities, but will have separate communal trailers with showers and bathrooms, along with a propane stove to heat the tents.
The new glamping sites would be near the top of lifts three and four. The sites will be accessed by using existing roads and trails, with shuttles, or by chairlift. No trees will be cut, and the sites will be in locations with minimal changes “to avoid potential impacts to federally listed threatened or endangered species or habitats, flood plains, wetlands, watersheds, wilderness, natural study areas, inventoried roadless areas, research natural areas, native religious/cultural sites, [and] archeological and historic areas of concern.”
