Fishhook Hut sits at 6,800 feet elevation next to a meandering creek in a beautiful meadow deep in the Sawtooth Mountains. The Sawtooth giants rise above the meadows, with spectacular views of Thompson Peak (the highest in the Sawtooth), Williams Peak, Mount Heyburn and Horstman Peak framed in the expansive window of the kitchen hut..
Fishhook Hut consists of two separate structures: a Mongolian–style yurt and a unique wall tent connected together by a lodge pole pine framed walkway.
All of the amenities for a comfortable stay are stocked at Fishhook: two wood stoves for heat, solar-power for light and charging your widgets, bunks with comfy mattresses, a three burner propane stove for cooking, all pots, pans and other cooking equipment, all tableware and utensils, a Dutch-oven (bring your own charcoal), books, board games, playing cards, magazines, two covered outhouses.
Moreover, a wood fired HOT TUB makes this hut extra special!
Guests need to bring only a sleeping bag, personal clothes and food. Fishhook sleeps 8 in the Yurt and 6 in the wall tent (14 total).
The approach to Fishhook is a gentle four mile tour, either following a meandering creek or along a beautiful ridge-line.
Fishhook is an ideal destination for tour oriented skiers or snowshoers, with many opportunities for scenic tours through the meadows and forests of Fishhook Valley safe from avalanche hazards.
For advanced skiers and boarders, there is also fantastic downhill and ski mountaineering potential on the big Sawtooth peaks above the valley. Horstman, Thompson and Williams Peaks are right above the Yurt and there are many classic ski mountaineering lines on the steep walls of these peaks and the Fishhook canyon.
