In the heart of the Sawtooths, the Williams Peak Hut has terrain to satisfy everyone.

The Williams Peak Hut can be rented on a private basis by qualified groups. There must be a group leader whom has been previously stayed at the yurt and has taken an Level 1 Avalanche Course. If no one in the group has been to the hut before, a first time hut rental guide is required. The first time hut rental guide will ensure you find the route to the hut and provide a hut orientation upon arrival.

The Williams Peak Hut is an extremely popular place and often books far in advance. As a result, we are required to have a strict reservation and cancellation policy. Please check the Calendar & Rates tab to book online or contact us to make a reservation.
