Guests must come prepared for the rigors of high-mountain winters. To make your stay at Rock Creek Lodge completely enjoyable, please remember to bring the following items, regardless of which style cabin you have reserved:

  • Warm sleeping bag, towels, and toiletries (pillows and pillowcases are provided)
  • Warm layers of clothing, including long underwear, a wool hat, gloves and a hooded, waterproof outer layer (pants and parka/anorak) to protect you from snow and wind. (If you plan a long ski day, be sure to take the outer layer of clothing with you, even if the weather is beautiful when you leave the lodge)
  • Please leave your bottled water at home. We have a 300′ artesian well; filtered by the granite peaks that ring our valley providing us with the best water. All you need is a bottle for it
  • Sun protection, including brimmed hat, sunglasses, maximum protection sunscreen, and lip protector
  • Your favorite snacks and lunch foods for fuel on the trail. You can also purchase complete trail lunches at the lodge
  • Trail supplies, a good-sized day pack or fanny pack, and a one-quart (or larger) water bottle. A minimum of two quarts of liquid per day is advised at these elevations, more if you ski hard in the warm Sierra sun
  • First aid supplies, particularly a system of moleskin or other blister prevention/protection with adhesive tape, is highly recommended. Aspirin and any personal medications are also advised
  • Flashlight or headlamp for getting around the lodge at night
  • Insulated boots

If you plan on earning your turns in the backcountry, or skiing from the mosquito flat hut bring a beacon, shovel, probe and know how to use them.
