The Experience

Greetings! Welcome to Oregon’s “Little Switzerland”, the Wallowa Mountains. We invite you to join us for a unique backcountry skiing experience in the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area. The Wallowa’s intercontinental snowpack, in excess of 400 inches a winter, provides wide open bowls, old growth glades, and classic couloirs. Ringed in by peaks just shy of 10,000 feet, our ski terrain boasts abundant north-facing powder slopes ensuring fresh tracks well after a storm plus non-technical summits. We offer four day long-weekender trips or five day mid-weeker trips. You will have large cozy yurts, delicious food, a sauna, and dry Wallowa powder all to yourself. Our McCully Basin camp at 7500ft elevation sits 1.5 miles inside the northeastern Eagle Cap Wilderness Area. Wing Ridge sits at 7300ft an easy climb from our highest trailhead, Salt Creek Summit 6400ft. Big Sheep is behind Wing Ridge. Our Norway camp sits at 7000 ft on the southwestern edge of the Wilderness Area.

Wallowa Alpine Huts operates under a special use permit from the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest and is an Equal Opportunity Provider and Employer.

The Camps & Zones

Aneroid Camp

Aneroid Cabins are accessed out of Wallowa Lake Lodge, Joseph Or. Perched at 7600 ft six miles inside the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area, the cabins provide access to excellent alpine terrain, Petes Point 9200, Jewet basin, Dollar Ridge, and the Wallowas 2nd highest peak, Aneroid Mtn.

McCulley Camp

McCully basin is where it all began for WAH in 1980. We've come a long way since skinny skis and sagging wall tents. As the ski gear evolved into sophisticated downhill touring equipment, the camp has grown into a little yurt village. With 41 seasons of operation, McCully boasts a rich and colorful history of ski visitors. The seasoned veterans say the food has gone gourmet and the new gear is cheating. But, everyone agrees what makes McCully truly special is it's unique location situated inside the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area. Solitude, fresh tracks, and glistening slopes abound.

Big Sheep Camp

Big Sheep camp is located behind Wing Ridge accessed via the Wallowas highest SnoPark, Salt Creek Summit at 6200ft. Traveling 3-miles with light day packs up and over 7500ft saddle of Wing Ridge Trial#1828, eliminates the first day slog to camp and allows for turns on the way to and from camp located at 6400ft. on the 100rd.

Norway Camp

NORWAY trips meet in Halfway OR, 97834. You know you're at the end of the road when you see snowmobile trailers and no pavement. If the road becomes snowgroomed, you've gone too far!!
