Ferguson Ridge Ski Area

It started when a group of people who liked to ski would appoint a volunteer, called “The Captain,” to locate a good place to ski each Sunday. They would all gather at this chosen spot and ski all day, picnic and have a great time. In order to ski down you had to climb up. If a packed slope was wanted, everyone spent time packing it with their skis. A big step forward was made in 1939 when a permanent location was selected and a rope tow constructed. The spot was on Stanley Hill, about two miles south of Joseph and a little south of where the Buhler Ranch is now. The tow was a continuous rope motivated by a Model A Ford engine. In 1948 the tow was moved to a slope at the end of what is now Ski Run Road.

Steen`s Wilderness Adventures

We will provide you with a quality hunting area. We situate our camps 3 - 5 miles apart to give you an isolated hunt; however, we cannot guarantee that a private hunting party will not camp nearby. We are the only outfitter permitted to pack into the areas you will be hunting. The majority of our hunts are Drop and Supplied Camps. Our groups are all packed in on the three days prior to the opening day of the season and packed out no later than the third day after the season ends. Since most of our seasons are at least 9 days long, we normally have all camps out by the day after the seasons closes. We try our best to accommodate your preferred date but sometimes it is necessary to pack certain groups together that are going in a common direction. We also honor first paid, first choice system when possible. We will provide you with a packer that is knowledgeable and capable of getting you and your gear packed in safely. Some of our camps do not have fresh running water and we will pack water to you in the water jugs that you provide. We will let you know if water jugs are needed at your campsite. Once the season opens, a packer will be checking on you periodically to see if you have game to pack or need additional water. The game will be packed and hung at either your campsite or our base camp. On earlier hunts with warmer weather, it may be necessary for the carcass to be taken to town to a meat locker. Your pack-out date will be previously arranged. If your group tags out early and wants to come out, we normally can make changes to meet your request.
