Description

This postcard perfect ski hut offers awe-inspiring views of the southern Sawatch Range through its tall, south-facing windows. This hut is an ideal home base to stir your adventurous spirit, and is well-situated for exploring the Middle Fork Valley of the South Arkansas River in any season. In the summer months, the hut is accessible via 4WD vehicles or hiking; it is a moderate ski or snowshoe during the winter months. Sitting 100 yards off brand new sections of the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail, the hut is in a prime location for hiking enthusiasts, and right on a jeep road for mountain bikers.

Reservations for November '16 through October '17 can be made starting August 1st.
