Shane Fox, one of the original founders of Three Sisters Backcountry is moving on to new adventures. It took a talented person working insanely hard to help create this “snowbound village”. All the skiers and friends who have enjoyed escaping into the woods can be grateful to Shane for his efforts and creativity.
Shane and his talented brothers have some other exciting projects in the works. When we get more info to share, we will.

This season has more than made up for the last few. The snowpack at happy valley is mid way up the second floor!!!
The Central Oregon Avalanche Association now has regular paid observers posting observations and our long time AIARE instructor Gabe Coler is now writing a weekly summary and weekend outlook. Please check out this information prior to your trip for some extra beta.
We have slowly been building a base. Two steps forward with snow, one step back with rain… But it’s looking more and more like winter. We are hoping this weekend puts us on skis for good. Common Ullr!!!
Our friend Adam Short crushing it at our annual Woodcut party. Thanks to all our friends for helping our guests keep warm this winter!
Last season our guests navigated their way across the Nordic Traverse with a GPS unit. This season we will be marking the entire 22 mile route. Guests can still explore the infinite number of ways to get from hut to hut, but this marked route will be a nice handrail.
