A foot of new snow, cold temps, low wind and a hardy group of men from the north provided the necessary ingredients for a phenomenal week in the Sawtooth Mountains. Guides: Joe St.Onge and Chris Marshall and apprentices Toby Citret and Sam Felch led the group from Bench Hut to Fishhook Yurt climbing and skiing and average of 6-7000′ a day and crossing many high passes, dropping many a perfect powder run and climbing a few peaks along the way including Thompson Peak, the highest in the range. This fun group of skiers ran High and Wild in the beauty of these mountains!
Skiing between Sun Vallley Trekking’s Bench and Fishhook Huts in the spectacular Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho. This is a great Haute Route ski expedition combining two nights at comfortable ski huts with two nights camping amongst the granite spires that give the Sawtooth their name. Amazing ski terrain abounds, ranging from steep couloirs to beautiful powder bowls in this seldom visited corner of our beautiful planet. On this trip, we found perfect stable powder on cooler aspects and beautiful sunny spring days, making for memories that last a lifetime!
