Are you ready for an exhilarating Mount Tahoma snowshoe adventure amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Mount Tahoma Trails? We’ve compiled all the essential information in this blog post to ensure you have a seamless and unforgettable journey.

How Far Are the Huts? Let’s dive into the distances and elevation gains for each hut:

  • Copper Creek Hut:
    • 3.2 miles from upper sno-park with 800′ elevation gain
    • 4.3 miles from middle sno-park with 1,070′ elevation gain (least frequently used)
    • 5.4 miles from lower sno-park with 1,570′ elevation gain (most frequently used)
  • High Hut and Bruni’s Snow Bowl Hut:
    • Approximately 3.0 miles from upper sno-park with 1,800′ elevation gain
    • 4.0 miles from lower sno-park with 2,400′ elevation gain
  • The Yurt:
    • An additional 2.5 miles with 400′ elevation gain past Snow Bowl Hut.

How Difficult Is the Hike? Prepare for backcountry travel, carry the 10 essentials, and be ready to turn back if needed. While main trails are usually groomed, there are days with fresh, ungroomed snow, requiring snowshoeing or skiing through deep snow. All trail users should be fit for a 5.0-mile uphill hike in snow with a pack. In summer, crushed rock/gravel may be on the main trails.

Are there overnight accomodations nearby? Mount Tahoma Trails Association provides rustic huts for overnight guests. For those looking for more luxurious accomodations at Mt. Rainier, checkout Mt. Rainier National Park Cabins. 

Will My Cell Phone Work? Cell phone coverage has improved, but don’t solely rely on it for emergency communication.

What Parking Permits Do I Need? Your Mount Tahoma Snowshoe adventure will require a Washington State Parks Sno-Park Permit during the winter season (November 1 to April 30), . You can purchase a $50 annual non-motorized sno-park permit, and daily $25 sno-park permits are also available. For the rest of the season, a WA State Discover Pass is required.

Where Can I Buy a Map or Rent Gear? Stop at Whittaker Mountaineering in Ashford before embarking on your Mount Tahoma Snowshoe adventure for maps, quality gear at great prices, and on-the-spot information.

Can I Bring My Dog to the Hut? Your dog is welcome on South District trails but not in buildings. For North District trails, dogs are not allowed due to wildlife preservation.
