Needs a location
We have been organizing huts trips for several years now. We have ski toured extensively in the backcountry, from short day trips to extended wilderness trips. Every year we book all the beds in a few huts. So far, we have a couple of amazing trips booked for 2014.
10th Mountain manages a system of 30 backcountry huts in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, connected by 350 miles of suggested routes. They provide a unique opportunity for backcountry skiing, mountain biking, or hiking while staying in safe, comfortable shelter.
The name honors the men of 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army, who trained during World War II at Camp Hale in central Colorado. Hut visitors share the special spirit of these individuals, especially their pursuit of excellence, self reliance, and love of the outdoors. We hope you find our website useful, but most of all we hope you enjoy the huts!
So, this trip is for the Eiseman hut. Click here (http://www.huts.org/The_Huts/eiseman.html) for more information.
This is a skiers hut. It is one of the more challenging routes in the system because of length and elevation gain but it more than makes up for it with its seclusion and beauty. The route is around 7 miles.
The rugged peaks of Colorado's Gore Range form the backdrop for the Eiseman Hut, 10th Mountain's most alpine hostel. Indeed, terrain rules this amazing location: Out the hut door is the best skiing of any 10th Mountain hut, where a short walk up the ridge behind the hut yields a cornucopia of glade skiing. Farther afield, tall Colorado peaks entice with glistening faces and snow filled couloirs.
The cost of this trip is $34 per person for a one night stay.
All of the huts are equipped with propane stoves and solar lights as well as kitchen utensils.
