Backcountry Operations

Looking to access a remote location, perhaps even a wilderness location with no access by vehicle? Whether it be for a rafting trip, a big game hunt, a backpack trip, or pristine fishing give us a call. We regularly service many remote locations mainly out of our Hamilton, MT location accessing the Selway wilderness of Idaho. With a combination of aircraft on wheels in the summer time and skis in the winter time we can get you to your remote destination year round.

FAQ
Moose Creek (1U1)

Nestled deep within the remote and rugged mountains of Idaho’s Selway Bitterroot Wilderness lies a little slice of paradise.

Moose Creek is snuggled tight against the foot of Trout Peak on one of the precious few parcels of level ground in this largely vertical backcountry.

Cradled between the pristine waters of the Selway River and Moose Creek is the historic Moose Creek Ranger Station and Airfield.
