We will do our best as a team to complete the Aircrete dome during the workshop; however, we do not guarantee completion. Unexpected obstacles such as adverse weather conditions, for example, may affect our progress and prevent the dome’s full completion. ​

About our host: Mark Yett 

 Welcome to a beating heart, rooted amidst the Stanislaus national forest, in the beautiful Northern California region.

Located on a boulder rich mountain top, in a luxurious landscape of natural textures, YETILAND* finds itself an extremely fun and unique Oasis for a one of a kind experience in the depths of the wilderness. A combination of artistic talents and hard work have been joining forces to create a vast playground that highlights freely the expression of an emerging off-grid counter-culture.

YETILAND* hosts an array of curated spaces, infrastructures, stages, installations and campgrounds. It’s a place where we are sure to find a great variety of activities for everyone. It can also offer a number of all- year-long habitations, potentially available for short or extended stays, during artistic residencies, building projects and different types of collaborative processes. Art, Sound and outdoor Sports are emphasized around the multi-faceted property of 186 acres. There are loud Sound systems plugged-in, visual Art displayed all over, hiking trails (for the avid One-Wheel* riders to go send-it*), dirt bike trails, environmental explorations... Not to mention the impressive cemented skate park with enough features to entertain a big group of skaters. There is a large outdoor pool-jacuzzi (under construction), an outdoor movie night cinema wall, a bar, a pizza shop, a bounce house and many game zones. 

Let’s not forget the infamous Rave-Cave* where the party can keep going around the clock if need be...

Yetiland* is named after its creator and owner, Mark aka YETI, who’s been steadily developing his property for about 5 years, holding a strong vision of sharing his passions with friends, and even further, to a wider network of like-minded individuals. He strived to create a ridiculously fun place on the hillside that would still provide the comforts and amenities of modern times... considerable logistical efforts have been tackled and dialed in to see it through. The moving parts are constantly growing and evolving. There are currently solar power systems, on demand energy supplies, phone service connectivity, Wifi and Water from a well. Yetiland* provides a plentiful usage of resources for its local humans, animals and plants. A phase of expansion is currently in progress as more building projects, efforts and teams are being orchestrated. Intentions of hosting bigger groups of people for professionally produced Music festivals and promotional events are brewing in the horizon. Desires to create a little Utopia village that provides autonomy, stability and sustainability for the long run are in course of action.

Location Details: Columbia, California

The Stanislaus National forest is amongst the Sierra Nevada mountain range and home of many outdoor destinations; The Moaning Caverns, Stanislaus river, Natural bridges state park, gold country historical landmarks, wine tasting, restaurants, hikes and fishing.
