Fairy Meadow Photo Gallery

 

Editor's note: Take a peek at some our favourite winter photos of Bill Putnam (Fairy Meadow) Hut and you'll see it's no wonder this legendary lodge is listed as number four in the top ten backcountry ski huts in North America!

Spring is typically a fantastic time of year to ski Fairy Meadow. With spring snow conditions on south facing slopes, powder on north facing slopes, and plenty of daylight to bag peaks, run extra laps, or enjoy a beer on the deck of the hut, you'll be grinning like a billy goat by day's end. The minimum group size for making a booking is two, and we require a minimum of 10 people to make the week run. The cost is $1,000 per person, including hut and helicopter. Find out more about booking a trip to this hut right here.


Let's kick this gallery off with a series of shots by photographer and powder enthusiast, Trent Bona.

"What started as a group of 19 loosely connected skiers and snowboarders embarking for week at the Fairy Meadow Hut ended with lifelong friendships and tales to be told. Karma weather, awesome accommodations, and fresh snow made for an epic adventure."
