Getting there: Head north on Highway 89 from Tahoe City. Park on the shoulder near the turn off for Forest Road 8, be sure your vehicle is completely off the road and behind the snow stakes. Follow FR-8 for 5 miles to the hut at 7,400’.
Reservations: Like the Peter Grubb hut, Bradley Hut is also owned and maintained by the Sierra Club and follows the same reservation requirements. It’s $15 per person a night. Due to its location in a sensitive wildlife area, Bradley hut is only open during the winter months.
The lodging: The hut is heated by woodstove, and is stocked with wood each fall. 12-15 people can sleep comfortable in the upstairs loft. Like the Peter Grubb hut, expect to bring bedding, a cook stove and utensils. There is a two-story outhouse nearby.
The skiing: Good lines are to be found in all directions from the hut including good stashes in the Deep Creek drainage to the north along with open bowls to the north-west and Silver Peak to the south. Some skiers make a two-night trip by travelling to Benson Hut located 4 miles to the north. As always, be aware of avalanche danger especially under corniced ridges and on Silver Peak.
