I have gone to Ostrander Ski hut 2 years in a row, and this year it's booked, as in Pear Lake Ski hut. And, I want to extend my trip from 3 to 4 days. Ideally we would have a hut to spend 1 of the 3 nights, and possibly as a nice destination/goal.
We want to avoid avalanche conditions (we'll have to be careful about going after major weather and steep slopes).
Any recommended routes that would be manageable? <8 miles/day average. Seems like the Tuolumne Meadows Hut would be too far for 2 days each way.
