Winter Recreation in the Big Belts
The Big Belt Hut is the perfect basecamp for skiing on Mt. Baldy this winter. The hut can comfortably accomodate up to 15 people.
In the winter, The Big Belt Hut costs (per night):
- $55 per person for adults (age 16+)
- $25 for teens 12 - 16
- Kids under 12 stay free!
Weekend / Weekday minimums ensure that bookings are exclusive to a single party.
(Sun - Thurs)
(Fri, Sat, Holiday)
| $220 minimum
(or 4 people)
| $330 minimum
(or 6 people)
Nightly minimums allow us to keep bookings exclusive such that you do not share the hut with another party.
Getting to the Hut
The hut sits 3 miles past the non-motorized boundary at the top of Duck Creek Pass. There is no motorized access to the hut.
Winter road maintenance stops 7.5 miles before the top of the pass, so getting to the hut is either a 10.5 mile ski or a 7.5 mile snowmobile + 3 mile ski.
See the maps page for more information.
Gear Haul + Tow
Let us take the load off your back! The trip into the Big Belt hut is 7.5 miles on a FS road, and then 3 miles on a gently climbing skin track. A snowmobile shuttle includes hauling all your equipment and your group up the entire 7.5 miles of road. We will then also break trail, and porter up to 80 lbs of your gear the remaining 3 to the hut.
Gear haul costs $200 plus $20/person

Alert: May & June Access
Duck Creek Pass closes to snowmobiles on May 15. During low snow years, it may be difficult to drive a snowmobile to the top of the pass in early May. On big snow years, wheeled-vehicle access to the top of the pass in late May may not yet be possible.
If you book during these times, please be prepared for these potential challenges which may lengthen the non-motorized portion of your approach. Conditions will change rapidly depending on the weather and we will make sure to get you the best information available at the time of your trip.
