What a beautiful place to hike!
It’s late May in the mountains, ski season is over and the hint of summer is in the air. This is the time of year when we check in at all the ski huts to store them for the summer season. It’s a beautiful and quiet time in the mountains, with life springing forth. It’s a great time for SVT owners/guides, Joe and Francie St.Onge, to get out with their young children for fun adventures while taking care of this unique system of backcountry huts. Sometimes those “chores” require firing up the wood fired hot tub to check it’s function…

Ahhh, the Fishhook Hot Tub sure is sweet!
Nothing like a hot tub on cold and rainy evening!
Francie, stepping carefully…
