Hut Rental Reservation Reference

Please provide the following information so we can connect your form with the correct Hut Rental Reservation.


Reservation Name (i.e. who booked the rental?) *

First day of hut rental *
Please Read Our Rental, Payment, and Cancellation Policy

Rental

The Williams Peak Hut is rented on a private basis to qualified groups. At least one member of the group needs to have been to the hut before, and at least one member of the group needs to have taken a 24-hour Level 1 Avalanche Course.

Payment

The minimum hut rental fee covers up to 8 people. Additional people beyond 8 up to a maximum of 12 are an additional cost per person. A 50% deposit of the minimum hut rental fee is required to make a reservation. Payment for additional renters in excess of 8 is due prior to your group heading into the hut. 

Cancellations

If we are able to rebook your cancelled dates, we will refund your payment less a $50/day administrative fee and 3% credit card fee. If we cannot rebook your dates, no credits or refunds will be given. Please understand that because the Williams Peak Hut is nearly completely booked each winter, we have very little flexibility in accommodating cancellations or date changes.

I have read and agree to the Rental, Payment, and Cancellation Policy
Important Details

FIREWOOD USE. Dead trees are becoming increasingly scarce around the hut. We can only cut firewood outside of the Wilderness boundary which is immediately above the hut. Please help us by being conservative with the use of firewood. Do not keep fires going during the day while out skiing and only light fires in the small yurt at night or when occupied.

DRONES. At the request of the U.S. Forest Service, Sawtooth Mountain Guides would like to remind hut renters that drones are illegal in designated Wilderness.  The Sawtooth Wilderness boundary is about fifty feet above the hut, and the majority of ski terrain is within the Wilderness.

DOGS. Dogs are not allowed at the hut for sanitation reasons (drinking water comes from snow melt).

I have read and agree to these instructions
To Be Completed By Designated Trip Leader Only

I am the Designated Trip Leader and agree to the terms above
