No black curtains here.
See ya next year!

Tomorrow is that somewhat bittersweet (more sweet than bitter) last day of operations for the 2013 season. Glad to be closing it out with deep pow, sunshine and happy guests!
Thanks to all the folks who made the trek to the end of the road to ski or ride with us this season. Also thanks to our sponsors: BCA
, Helly Hansen
, K2 Skis
, K2 Snowboarding
, and Smith Optics
. And our partners at the the Freestone Inn
, Goat's Beard Mountain Supplies,
and of course, the Mazama Store
who made sure no guest went hungry at lunch or at the yurt.

Looking ahead to 2014, we anticipate the 2014 season to run from January 24th to March 23rd, 2014. This shortened season is due to our user day issue. We'd like to run longer but that is not possible at this time nor may ever be.
In addition to the Barron yurt being sold out, many weekends in February and March are also sold out or close to it. Blackout dates for our heli programs are as follows:
February 4-6th, room for 1 group of 4 left
Feb 9-11th sold out
Feb 13-15th sold out
Feb 21-23 sold out
Feb 28-March 1 sold out
March 7-8 sold out
March 13-16 sold out
Don't delay getting in touch if you are considering a trip to the North Cascades in 2014.

It's been a good few days as winter is back. Pictured is Joan hitting the pow on Amy's. Nothing like putting down some lines in the NC backcountry!

Wow. That went fast. Thanks to the need to reallocate user days to our alpine program, the limited 2014 season at the Barron Yurt is sold out at this time. We are taking names for a wait list in the event of a cancellation on a first come, first served basis. We are also taking reservations for 2015 at the yurt at this time.
Our heli-ski programs are also booking at a quick pace, with select February and March dates already gone. Book (make a deposit) before June 1, 2013 and we'll give you this year's rates for our standard heli-skiing programs. We anticipate our heli-ski season will run January 24th to March 23rd.

Almost as good as some untracked pow is a delicious Mazama Store sandwich in the backcountry. Mark, Rex and Eliza fuel up for more vert.
