I skied in to Poplar for the night. It was a gorgeous day. Although I thought the ski was a bit of a challenge, it was beautiful. The dinner was outstanding! I have been to huts before and thought the food this time was really great. There was a massage therapist that day at the hut. What a treat! I have two comments. There was no decaf coffee offered and the room was really warm. I was excepting 50 degrees as the website says but it was much warmer than that so my sleeping bag was way too warm. I don't like to complain that it was too warm in the winter but sleeping was a problem. Otherwise, it was perfect!

Another great time. Keep up the good work. Very comfortable accomodations.
Great lodgin, conditions and food!
Only thing not making this experience a 5 was the 2 couples that slept with us at poplar. There was plenty of room for our group of 4 to be separated. Men got up to go to the bathroom, cold door inconsiderate talking etc. next time I'll ask for my group to have their own bunk room.
Great time great food and overall great atmosphere
Add this trip to your bucket list!
My partner and I took my mom on a 2-night / 2-hut skiing trip here as a gift. She loved it and says, "If I had a bucket list, this would have been on it!" We skied into Poplar Hut on Friday afternoon, then enjoyed an evening of relaxation, games, great beer, good company, and DELICIOUS food. The ski downhill from Poplar towards Stratton Brook was a little daunting, so we hiked down the first part of the snowshoe trail (past the awesomely frozen waterfall!) then had a beautiful ski along the flatter snowshoe trail. This was our favorite part of the trip! We then skied to Stratton Brook hut (hiking the very steep last half mile or so) and had yet another amazing meal made by more amazing hut staff. In the morning we took a short hike down the very steep part of the trail, then had a beautiful and gently downhill ski back to the Airport Trailhead. We'd love to come back!
3 day xc ski trip
Had a great time as usual, our third year skiing. Only one itsy bitsy complaint: at Flagstaff Hut on 2/28 no coffee ready 'til 7am. The guests were antsy for their morning joe. see you next fall & winter.
