Backcountry Hut Trip
The 10th Mountain huts, Summit huts, and Hinsdale Haute system huts range in character from yurts to quaint rustic cabins to classy backcountry lodges. Access during the winter is by ski touring, splitboard or snowshoe.
Our Colorado backcountry skiing trips combine these warm and comfortable backcountry huts and their authentic mountain settings, together with access to exceptional backcountry skiing. Backcountry hut trips provide the perfect combination of exceptional skiing and snowboarding terrain and authentic backcountry accommodation. Relax on a cozy bench with a hot cup of tea after a day of making fresh turns, as your guide prepares a hearty, home cooked meal on the woodstove.
Colorado hut to hut tours continue to grow in popularity; experiencing a backcountry hut tour with our ski guides is a great way to connect with the Colorado landscape while increasing your knowledge of backcountry travel and avalanche preparedness. And of course, backcountry hut trips are a great time with good people!.
Spectacular terrain bordering hut areas offer extensive options for backcountry skiing and riding for all ability levels. Hut trips can also be combined with AAA (American Avalanche Association) compliant avalanche curriculum to add formal education to your trip.
