Description

Getting to Weston Pass Hut in the winter is a strenuous adventure. It is strongly advised that you or someone in your party has backcountry skiing experience before embarking on this trip. The altitude at the trailhead is 9,698 feet and the altitude of the hut is 11,950 feet.

It's recommend that you park at the base of the canyon and near the confluence of Little Union and Big Union Creeks as indicated on the map.

The grade of the trail is moderate with a constant uphill and a lot of weather exposure. Given the chance of windy and extreme weather, the trail may be covered in deep powder. But it is also often windblown and parts might even require carrying skis and hiking. Be sure to start early so that you can arrive at the hut before sunset.
