Spraddle Creek TH to Eiseman Hut

This 10th Mountain marked and suggested route is in our opinion the best way the Eiseman Hut. Start with climbing skins at the Spraddle Creek Trailhead. Ski the snow covered Spraddle Creek jeep trail about 1 7/8 miles (depending on exact start), then take a hard left off the road and head N across Spraddle Creek.

Follow a route that swings W then N around a shoulder, gradually drops ¾ mile to Middle Creek (9,490 feet), then follows the Middle Creek drainage 1 1/4 miles to 10,500 feet. Here the nature of the trail changes abruptly as it swings N and climbs 2 miles of steep switchbacks through timber to the Eiseman Hut. The hut is not visible until you break out of the trees a few feet away.
