What is the Event?
A fun, family friendly event showcasing the huts of the South District of the Mount Tahoma Trails Association. Come snowshoe or ski to one, two, or three of the huts with a passport book to track your progress, snacks at the huts, and patrollers on the trails to ensure your safety and answer your questions.
Date of the Event
Tour De Huts has been held twice: on Saturday, February 27, 2016 and on Saturday, January 28, 2017. No Tour De Huts is planned for 2018.
How do I register?
Information on registration will be posted prior to the next Tour De Huts.
What should I expect at the event?
You’ll sign-in at the Sno-Park and sign a waiver since we’re operating on Department of Natural Resources Land.
Take your time and make the journey as short or as long as you’d like. Huts will be staffed by volunteers serving hot drinks and light snacks to help fuel your journey.
Please note that skis or snowshoes are REQUIRED on the trails; no walking in boots on the ski trails. Please abide by trail etiquette, which requires showshoers to keep to the side of the trails to allow skiers to safely use the main part of the groomed trail.
Please note that our South District trails are steep, and allow 2-3 hours to make it to each hut. Always ski within your ability, and if in doubt, snowshoe instead.
Always carry the ten essentials. Not sure what these are? Here’s a link to help you out: 10 essentials
Feel free to grab one of our free paper maps at the Sno-Park, or with a suggested $10 donation to MTTA, you can have a waterproof map of the entire trail system.
Plan to be off the trails by 3:30 p.m. Sign out with a volunteer at the Sno-Park to both ensure that you’re safely off the trail, and to collect your free prizes!
Can I bring my dog?
Your canine partner is welcome on our South District trails! Dogs need to be under your control and are not allowed in the huts, including the mudrooms and vestibules. However, dogs have a special exemption from the ski/snowshoe requirement and last we heard, cats all over the state are a little bit envious!
