About The rustic lodge, built of wood and stone in the 1970's, is a forty-foot diameter log lodge built yurt style with beautiful views of the Bitterroot Valley to the east 2,000 feet below, and prime ski runs to the west. Sited at the bottom of the large open ski runs leading from Little Downing Mountain, 2500 feet above, it is the only lodge in the Bitterroot Range that serves opportunities for backcountry skiing in winter and private Forest Service access year round. Unique with its private road access there is never competition from snowmobiles and day skiers. A trip leader organizes a group up to 10 people. A two night minimum stay and eight guest minimum on weekends and holidays is requested. The rental rate Is $165 per person per night in winter and $425 per night during the summer for four guests. Please check website for full booking details. There is an additional 8% lodging tax in Montana. Host John Lehrman looks forward to serving your backcountry desires!
