Description

Perched on a slope of Mount Heyburn in the spectacular Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho, the Heyburn Hut is a handcrafted wall tent built on site using local lodgepole pine. Enjoy phenomenal views of Mount Heyburn through the massive picture window as you sit upon the knotty pine stools at the dining table, enjoying your morning coffee. Prepare for a day of downhill shredding in the alpine bowls and chutes that encircle the lake basin sitting above the hut. The tour winds upward above the hut and through five frozen lakes encircled by towering spires of the Sawtooth range. Or, take a more relaxed pace and explore the gentle powder slopes located directly behind the hut. Whatever you fancy as you explore the unparalleled beauty of the Sawtooth Wilderness, this is your basecamp.  

The Heyburn Hut provides the opportunity to go hut-to-hut between Mount Heyburn and the Fishhook Peaks Yurt in winter, a four mile trek.

*NOTE: Yurt may be rented privately or shared with other groups. Open dates on the calendar may have some spaces already reserved. Please inquire about availability. Blocked dates indicate the hut is fully booked. A party of eight constitutes a private rental. See Property Policies for info about Private Rentals vs. Sharing.

First time renters must hire a guide to take them to the yurt.

Open October through early May, depending on the weather.
