On the ridge of Mt. baldy at 8500' feet in the heart of the Big Belt Mountains, the Big Belt Hut sleeps up to 15 people. Open year-round, it provides incredible backcountry skiing and touring access in the winter and spring as well as mountain biking, trail running, hiking, and hunting in the summer: all right out of the front door.

The Alpine Yurt and the Lupine Yurt are located at the base of Mt. Morrell in the Swan Mountain range. Conveniently located between Helena and Missoula, the horseshoe shaped ridge is a microclimate of snow, snow, and more snow. Only open December through March, so book now!
