The 10th Mountain Division Hut System
The 10th Mountain Division Hut System manages and takes reservations for a system of 30 backcountry huts in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, connected by 350 miles of suggested routes. These include a great variety of huts, ranging from cabins located within a few miles of a trailhead, to backcountry shelters that are many miles from any other signs of civilization. These include huts owned and operated by the Braun and Friends hut systems, located south of Aspen, CO, as well as the Summit Huts Association; a 501-C3 non-profit located in Summit County, CO. You can find more detailed information on those hut systems by using the main menu at the top of the page.
We provide a unique opportunity for backcountry skiing, mountain biking, or hiking while staying in safe, comfortable shelter. Our 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.
