Join Saveur the Journey and Eagle Cap Mountain Guides for an ADVANCED level ski/splitboard backcountry touring hut trip to the Western Wallowa Mountains of Eastern Oregon. The Wallowas are a hidden gem featuring impressive and rugged terrain, excellent snow, and pristine remoteness. The Buck Creek Basecamp is located just outside the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area and features amazing terrain with above and below treeline options depending on snow stability. From gladed tree runs to steep couloirs and wide-open bowls, the options are plentiful for proficient riders. We start the day with a snowmobile tow up a summer access road, getting us closer to Burger Butte 8,488’ and China Cap 8,656’ where we will spend the day skiing and riding.
Our Basecamp-style trip utilizes a brand new 20′ yurt from Pacific Yurt Inc. and a 20×13′ wall tent for guest sleeping, as well as a sauna for apres-ski relaxing. Hearty and delicious meals, superb IFMGA certified Ski Guide, poney kegs of local craft beer, and a superb view of the mountains round out the Buck Creek Basecamp experience.
