"The natural scenery -- more than 12 square miles of it -- is varied and always exciting. Around some curves, skiers will find a cold creek. Other areas are known for hills or lakes that seem like they're in the middle of nowhere."
- Ron Bergin, publisher of Cross Country Skier magazine

Super Bowl Weekend Hut to Hut

February 3rd, 2018

We are going to explore a special place Lucie Gagnon and Bob Yankus have kept their own little secret for years.

This years snowshoe (approx. 5km) will be an all new adventure to climb and explore Moose mt. and the Lonesome Beaver ponds. We will ski to the Stokely Lake Cabin along the Peterson trail as we have done in the past. A quick snack and hot chocolate before getting the snowshoes unpacked and on our feet.

From the cabin, we follow the Peregrine Pass trail 1km before heading off trail to climb Moose Mountain. This peak is about 30-40ft. higher then the King Mt. Hut . From the top will be a birds eye view of Stokely Lake to the north. We will be the first snowshoers to stand there since Lucie and Bob found it over 10 years ago.

Next highlight will be the Lonesome Beaver ponds, a hidden paradise the beavers have used for centuries. Following the outlet to the west we search for ice cliffs in small canyons.

We loop around to our earlier trail and back to the Stokely Lk. Cabin with a fantastic lunch waiting for you.

The ski route is less hilly then the Hakon Lien cabin return and back to the lodge in 1/2 hr.

This new Hut to Hut will be one of our finest ever.

A hearty lunch and skis will be waiting for you

Bring a ski bag and a small back pack with dry and proper clothing (gloves, boots dry socks, hats, water bottles, etc) for each portion of the trip. The return ski to the lodge is mostly downhill through the forest. This will be a rewarding day of scenery, exercise, food and friends.

$15 for overnight guests, a $25 fee for season pass holders. Day skiers will pay $40 which includes a discounted day pass. Make your reservations for the Hut to Hut when you book your stay, or as soon as possible. This event fills quickly.
