This winter we journey to the snowy wilderness of the Wallowa Mountains for backcountry skiing and yurt camping in Oregon’s remote outback.
With skis and beacons, we follow the crew at Wallowa Alpine Huts into the Eagle Cap Wilderness in Eastern Oregon. Camped in a luxury yurt at Norway Base, we start our days learning mountain snow skills and spend the afternoons skiing through the trees and unmarked powder slopes, exploring the serene, jagged cliffs of the Wallowa Mountains. At night we refuel with a hearty dinner and soak our weary muscles in the wood-fired sauna, knowing the night’s snowfall will bring new snowpack for tomorrow’s adventures.
