Advanced Intermediate level Backcountry Ski
This is a 22 mile Hut to Hut tour from Dutchman Flat near Mt Bachelor to Three Creeks Sno Park near Sisters. The route roughly follows the historic Metolius Windigo Trail at 6500’, on the eastern edge of the Three Sisters Wilderness area. We will meet our shuttle Friday at 8:00 am at Three Creeks near Sisters. Friday & Saturday nights will be spent in huts along the route and Sunday evening we will drive home from Three Creeks. The terrain will be ungroomed, rolling to gentle slopes and will not be subject to avalanche danger. The two huts are fully stocked with food, beds, wood stove and cooking facilities. They provide sleeping bags as well; so you only need to carry a bag liner and your personal gear and clothing! We can’t anticipate the weather so the snow conditions could vary from untracked powder to icy and anything in-between.

Since the distance between huts is only 8 miles avg. there should be time for additional skiing & exploring opportunities.
