Backcountry Hut Trips

Take a trip off the beaten path to a rustic backcountry cabin. Find untouched powder turns, snowmobiling, and lifetime memories.

A truly unique experience is hosted by the nonprofit Summit Huts Association, which operates five backcountry cabins in Summit.

They’re a great starting place for snowmobiling, backcountry skiing, stargazing, and romance.

Summit Huts

From A Remote Mountain Palace

Summit Huts Association provides a backcountry refuge for self-propelled mountain recreational users and provides a unique venue in spectacular natural settings for community, charitable and educational programs.

The hut system is very popular, and reservations must be made far in advance. Each hut features unique amenities.  Francie’s Cabin, for example, is the most frequently visited cabin in the whole Colorado system and features a wood burning stove for heat, solar powered lights, an indoor composting toilet, a wood burning sauna, mattresses, and a fully equipped kitchen.
