This is my home hut, so maybe I’m biassed, but it is amazing. The two small huts are nestled at the base of Three Creeks lake with Tam Rim jutting upward on all sides. The beauty of this hut is its ease of access. A short morning skin takes you to the Rims top, opening up a wide variety of terrain. You can choose to drop back into the Three Creeks Valley or tour into Broken Top mountain and beyond. The huts have a perfect Northwest flavor, complete with beautiful artisan woodworking and cozy sauna. This year Three Sisters Backcountry has introduced a hut to hut experience as well. If you are in Oregon this is the spot.Hidden Huts Tam Rim

Sitting at 6,800 feet Fishhook Yurt is Idaho at its best. This location shows you the raw beauty of the Sawtooths mountains, but also provides a good access point for more advanced lines and ski mounteenering. Oh did I mention there is a wood fired hot tub…enough said.Hidden Huts FishHook

At 10,200’ Ridgeway Hut sits under the North Slopes of Reconnoiter Peak (12,980′). With rugged peaks jutting upwards the hut is surrounded by a spruce forest making it feel secret and remote.
