Simply put, a fully guided hut trip to the Williams Peak yurts is as good as it gets.

The terrain at the Williams Peak Hut is recognized as some of the best in the country. Now imagine backcountry skiing from the hut with a professional guide intimately familiar with all the hidden nooks and crannies. After an incredible day of skiing powder glades, high alpine tours, or heart-stopping couloirs, it’s time to kick back at the hut, enjoy a glass of wine, and savor a delicious dinner. In the morning, eat a hearty breakfast then you’re out the door to do it all over again!

Leave the hard work to us. We’ll haul the food in for you, and with sleeping bags already stocked at the hut, you’ll have the luxury of carrying a light pack into the hut. Once at the hut, everything is taken care of and all you have do is ski, smile, and sleep!

The terrain surrounding the hut will keep everyone entertained, whether you’re a hardened steep skiing junkie, or you’re content skiing open powder shots beneath the rugged Sawtooth summits.

The Williams Peak Hut is incredibly popular and books fast. Please take a look at our Availability Calendar – any open dates or “Available for Guided Hut Skiing” blocks can be reserved.
