Please keep in mind that it is subject to change if circumstances warrant.

  1. When is the expiration date? We have extended the expiration date of this credit to September 30, 2021. This means that you need to make the reservation with applied credit before September 30, 2021. Your trip can occur after this date and in fact could occur as late as April 30, 2022 given typical booking schedules for members and non-members. This timeframe is intended to allow ample time to plan and allow maximum hut availability.

  3. I sold or bought hut space from another party on the forum – what should I do? Call us at your earliest convenience and we will issue hut credit accordingly.
  4. Can I transfer this credit? Yes, you can elect to transfer this to others including friends, family, or an organization such as a school group. Just let us know the name of the person or organization you would like to be able to use your credit.
  5. Can I use this credit to purchase retail items or make a donation to my favorite nonprofit hut organization - Braun, Friends, Grand, Summit or 10th Mountain? Yes! Please call or email.
  6. Where can I use this credit? All huts except Braun and Friends.
  7. How do I apply the credit?
    1. Call 10th Mountain Reservations. We look forward to visiting with you!
    2. Refer to it on your 2021-2022 Winter Lottery form - available to members only.
    3. Please note that hut credit cannot be applied via our online booking platform, and cannot be applied to trips that have already been reserved. For example, this credit cannot be applied to a trip recently awarded in the Winter 2020-2021 Lottery.

The Alfred Braun Hut System and Friends Hut has issued 100% credit for all trips cancelled through April 30, 2020 and the following information will help answer questions re-garding this credit. Please keep in mind that it is subject to change if circumstances warrant.

We issued a substantial amount of credit during last year's historic avalanche cycle and are now issuing a lot more credit for COVID-19. This reduces our ability to keep the huts in good condition and available at affordable rates. Please call or email.
