Protected in the trees beneath the exposed terrain of Tam McArthur Rim are two 20’ yurts and a wood fired sauna. Our wood-heated yurts are beautifully handcrafted by skiers, for skiers. Both the Owl and Raven yurts have a full kitchens, dining & lounge areas and each Yurt has six bunks.
Ideally located for ski touring, guests have access to 280,000 snow covered acres in the Three Sisters Wilderness. Tam McArthur Rim rises up 1,500 feet directly from the yurts and stretches for two miles, providing an incredible variety of terrain including open bowls, treed glades, couloirs, gentle meadows, and steep chutes.
Beyond Tam McArthur Rim, the wilderness stretches over spectacular ridges, glades, lakes and buttes leading to peaks over 10,000 feet. Broken Top, South Sister, Middle Sister and North Sister are all within a few miles. The mountains and the surrounding terrain offer limitless tours and lines for all levels of ability.
Our guides offer decades of experience and local knowledge. Familiarity with the terrain and snowpack allow our guides to safely take you directly to the best stashes and sweetest lines.
You can also request a keg to be packed into the yurt from one of our fabulous local breweries.
These huts are located 6 snow-covered miles and 1,100 feet above the Three Creeks Sno-park on the shore of Three Creek Lake. Check the map.

We post all confirmed reservations to the Tam Rim Huts as they come in to the calendar below.
Our Hut Based Avalanche Courses also use the Tam Rim Huts so those are also shown.
Tips for Reading the Calendar:
- Peak Nights = Thursday, Friday and Saturday
- On Peak Nights, each hut is reserved exclusively so if it says “Owl reserved” or “Raven reserved” that means the other hut is still available.
- On other nights, bunks are available within each hut; count up the reserved bunks for that night and subtract from 12 to see how many are left.
- Hut Based Avalanche Courses are held at these yurts and are indicated as reserved.
Each reservation on the calendar shows the arrival date through the departure date.
Different groups can overlap by one day — meaning one group departs in the morning while the next arrives in the afternoon.
- Reservations are first come first served
- Book up to one year in advance
- 50% deposit due to hold your reservation; balance due 2 weeks prior to start
