Ski areas are starting to open and the snow is starting to fall. This is all great news for us, as it means many people will have a chance to incorporate Weston Pass Hut into their backcountry adventures. Although the hut wasn’t quite finished last year, we were able to utilize it in the winter for personal use. It is truly an amazing place in the winter. The trek in took us a little over four hours, but it could take longer depending upon the conditions. Although the wind was fierce and the weather was cold, the hut was a complete sanctuary. It wasn’t too long before some of us were hanging out in our t-shirts and sharing stories over beers. We cooked a great dinner, and just enjoyed the complete isolation that the hut offers. The next day was filled with backcountry skiing and mountain adventure.
