Williams Peak Hut Rental

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. Reservations for the winter of ’24-’25 are now available. Reservations for ’25-’26 will be available in early November of 2024.

We want your group to have a great time at the Williams Peak Hut! To make your visit, and that of others, as awesome as possible, please understand the following:

 If part of your group is coming in late, please ensure they know how to find the hut. Please refer to the trailhead map in the Forms & Paperwork section. The Latitude and Longitude of the hut is 44.1530, -114.9815.

 Although we love dogs, they are not allowed at the hut for sanitation reasons (drinking water comes from snow melt).

 There must be a group leader who has previously stayed at the yurt and has taken a Level 1 Avalanche Course. If no one in the group has been to the hut before, a first time hut rental orientation is required ($280).

 There is limited car parking available at the Stanley Ranger Station. Please carpool as much as possible. Additional cars can be parked in the pullouts by the Redfish Lake turn or in the large parking area close to Stanley. Both are on Highway 75 about a mile north and south of the Stanley Ranger Station. If you have a large van/RV or are towing a trailer, you will need to park at one of these alternative locations.

 Dead trees are becoming increasingly scarce around the hut. We can only cut firewood outside of the Wilderness boundary which is immediately above the hut. Please help us by being conservative with the use of firewood. Do not keep fires going during the day while out skiing and only light fires in the small yurt at night or when occupied.

 “Check-Out” time is 11 am. Please have all cleaning and departure duties completed before then. If you plan to ski past that time, please have the yurts cleaned out and your extra belongings stored outside of the yurts. “Check-In” time is 1 pm to allow for maintenance. If you arrive early and would like to ski, please leave your belongings in the sauna or the sleeping yurt if it is unoccupied.

 At the request of the U.S. Forest Service, Sawtooth Mountain Guides would like to remind hut renters that drones are illegal in designated Wilderness. The Sawtooth Wilderness boundary is about fifty feet above the hut, and the majority of ski terrain is within the Wilderness.
