On a long, cold winter night, it is hard to imagine anything more appealing than sitting in a warm hut and sharing dinner with friends while the snow falls outside. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Mt. Tahoma Trails Association volunteers, cross-country skiers have three public huts to choose from. This eTrail features Snow Bowl Hut and the very scenic High Hut. Reaching these two huts is never an easy task. The access roads are steep, demanding considerable effort to ascend and, when icy, even more effort to descend. Skiers who have never toured with an overnight pack should factor that challenge into the equation as well. Arrive at the trailhead early and allow plenty of time for the trip. Inexperienced skiers may wish to add a pair of snowshoes to their load, just to be on the safe side. (Snowshoers should stay to the side of the groomed road and never leave dangerous holes or lumps for skiers.) Reservations are available on a first-come basis, from December 15 to the end of March. Avalanche potential: low
