Snowshoeing with Overnight Stay at Barlow Butte Hut, Oregon
February 19, 2011

Cascade Huts LLC has three huts for rent in the White River Valley and along Barlow Ridge. We had the opportunity to snowshoe two miles to the Barlow Butte Hut and spend the night Friday. We started at the Barlow Pass SnoPark around 5:15 PM just as the sun was setting. The temperature was about 26° F and there was no wind. One to two feet of fresh snow had blanketed the area during the week. http://loomisadventures.com/blog/snowshoeing-overnight-stay-barlow-butte-hut-oregon

Silence and Singletrack

Tops on our list? Mount Hood, the sprawling, 11,249-foot sleeping volcano just an hour outside town. Circumnavigate the big guy on a four-day hut-to-hut trip starting in Hood River. Days are spent covering up to 40 miles of singletrack and logging roads in the million-acre Mount Hood National Forest and gawking at the views of Hood, Adams, St. Helens, and, on a clear day, Rainier. Your digs, courtesy of the Cascade Huts system, are rustic cabins in the forest. The huts are stocked with pasta, plus sleeping pads and bags.

Feature Article in Sierra Club Magazine March/April, 2009
"Single track brings everything closer and accentuates the illusion of speed. We hug corners as clumps of paintbrush, buckwheat, and lupine flash by in bursts of red, white, and blue. 'Everything is better on single track,' Tufts yells out."

The World's Sexiest Winter Lodges

"The Cascade Huts are the real deal. Comfy but small, the cabins offer light from lanterns, warmth from a propane heater, and sustenance from food you prepare yourself in the kitchen. They're two to four miles from the trailhead, ensuring that the only intrusion into your sweet, shared solitude will be the wind whispering through the trees. It's a perfect excuse to zip your sleeping bags together."

"I only paid for one night, so we pack slowly and ski out along the ridge enjoying sunny views of the White River valley and a gentle downhill slope toward home. Maren and Thomas stop to take a picture next to a heart-shaped waterfall. Mom says something about "next time we come to the hut."

"I ski behind the group, to make sure no one tries to turn around and go back."
