Three Sisters Backcountry
Backcountry Ski Guides & Tours
Three Sisters Backcountry began offering backcountry skiing from their Raven and Owl Huts in the 2009/10 season, and their Nordic Traverse in the 2014/15 season. They’ve also been teaching AIARE Avalanche Courses since 2005. This small, family-owned business wants to share the beauty of backcountry skiing as well as the infrastructure they have worked so hard to create, from their hand-built huts, saunas, haul trailers, custom snowpark office, remote bathrooms, and more. The backcountry skiing Tam McArthur Rim Huts located 6 snow-covered miles and 1,100 feet above the Three Creeks Sno-park on the shore of Three Creek Lake, are protected in the trees beneath the exposed terrain of Tam McArthur Rim. There are two 20’ yurts and come with a wood-fired sauna, full kitchens stocked with dishes, utensils, cookware and fuel for the stove, dining and lounge areas, as well as six bunks. The restroom facility is a Forest Service outhouse, and the sauna is shared by both yurts.They also offer a 3-Day, 2-Night Backcountry Nordic Hut to Hut Traverse, a self-guided 22-mile route that contours along the eastern boundary of the Three Sisters Wilderness roughly following the historic Metolius Windigo Trail at an average of 6,500′ in elevation. Each of the two huts is stocked with food, wood stoves, propane cook stoves and full kitchen supplies, and every bunk has a mattress and sleeping bag. Drinking water comes from melting snow on the stove, and there is an outhouse with toilet paper at each hut location. Reserve online well in advance to secure your spot.
