18 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain •
We attempted to do the traverse from Dutchman Flat to Three Creeks, but had to start in a snow storm, temp in the low teens, visibility poor. After 3 miles and 3 hours of breaking trail in knee deep powder, we knew we were not going to make the first hut before nightfall. We turned back and regrouped at a hotel.
The next day the hut owners gave us a snowmobile ride up to Three Creek Lake and we got to spend the night at the second hut. Fun skiing around that area, and the ski out the next day was mighty fine!
