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!

Why is everybody laughing so hard in the hut pictures was it some sort of elf joke
Outstanding photography Joe, that’s what I call a five star backcounty adventure.
Curious on the name and location of the hut? also is that the GoalZero solar lighting system?
I think it is safe to say “The Men of the North in the Sawtooths” broke the fun barrier!
Backcountry Base Camp Solar
Thanks Glenn. That was the Bench Hut in the photos and we went to Fishhook yurt as well, both in the Sawtooth near Redfish Lake. And yes, that’s the Goal Zero system, which has been working greta.
