Accessing The Big Belt Hut In Winter

Getting There

Snowmobile + Ski

This is an 11 mile trip, with the first 8 miles on the Duck Creek Pass road (no winter maintenance). Then, from the non-motorized boundary at the top of the pass, you must ski the remaining 3 miles to the hut on Trail 151, gaining the final 1,000'.

We do offer a gear haul service which includes a snowmobile tow up the road with an optional porter service to deliver your gear to the hut.

The Winter Trailhead is a parking area on the left up Duck Creek road, a few hundred yards before the end of winter maintenance, click here for directions. This is where gear hauls will meet.

Big Belt Hut With Gear Haul

You cannot start a trip with a gear haul on Saturdays or Tuesdays because we do not offer this service on these days, but your trip can span or end on these days (gear haul is only one way). If a chosen date says "Not Available This Day" it means we are running a gear haul that day at another location. Feel free to call us if you are unable to find a day that works, and we might be able to make special accommodations. Otherwise, the hut is still available to book if you choose Nevermind, I don't need a gear haul.
