Eastern Sierra Huts

Sierra Nevada – North Lake – 3 Days

$1,250 per person with 3-6 in your group

A North Lake Sierra Ski Huts trip starts by meeting in Bishop California and then heads up above the small village of Aspendell.  A 2-hour approach brings the groups up to the small hut where we drop all the gear except the essentials and head out for the vast terrain around us. Some of the best and most advanced ski terrain of any hut in California.  The North Lake Hut may be the most basic hut in the state but it more than makes up for it with some of the best terrain.  It is a fabric insulated building with bunk beds and a small cook and prep kitchen.
