Stayed in the hut by Homestake Peak. The hut was very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen was supplied with an amazing assortment of cooking utensils. Beds were comfortable and facilities were excellent.

We have visited the huts numerous times and they are the best,unique family experience around. First please know not all huts are created equal. Second, calling them huts is an understatement, they are like mini back country lodges. for families with younger kids the Shrine Mt. huts, Continental Divide huts are the best, They are beautiful huge mountain lodges with electricity, water and even a shower. Their locations are absolutely incredible and easy to bike, ski or hike to The other huts' amenties vary, and the farther the distance to the hut, the less amenties you will find. BUT all are well equipped, roomy and just beautiful. The hut locations vary from easy to difficult access, where during the winter ,you need to be avalanche knowledgable, in

Just got back from Fowler Hilliard Hut near Camp Hale. The room is a little far from the parking area (5.5 Miles with a 2500' vertical climb). You need to carry and avalanche beacon, shovel and probe. You need to bring all your own food and a sleeping bag. There is no shower or towels. You share the kitchen and common area with up to 16 people. Bathroom is an outhouse. That said, 10th Mountain Huts are one of the most fabulous ways to enjoy the Colorado wilderness in the winter. The views and back country skiing are unsurpassed. Can't wait until next year's trip!

Room Tip: Get there early.

I count that I've been on 53 hut or yurt trips in Colorado since 1998; mostly 10th Mountain Huts, but not entirely. In fact my friends and I bought a mini-hut ourselves just last summer in order to recreate the experience as often as we want. This is a great organization and hut trips are a great experience. It can be a bit of work to get one to yourselves and to get your friends aligned on dates and make sure they have adequate abilities, but if you can get it together you're guaranteed a wonderful time. Here are my favorites and the reasons why:
- Jay's Cabin. A "training-wheels" hut - the most amenities and one of the easiest to get to, winter or summer (2WD). Start here if you are unsure.
- Skinner. Best setup for a summer 4th of July party - single level with bedrooms on the back. But the longest day in during the winter - stay in Leadville the night before.
- Jackal. Best views. Most fun 4WD in summer.
- Section House/Ken's Cabin. Most likely to encounter ghosts. Most historical but can be spooky - a Stalag on a barren pass. Easy grade in on a road. Closed in summer.
- Carl's - coziest for 3 couples.
- Uncle Bud's - in summer this is 3 fun 4WD miles off-road, and Turquoise Lake makes for stellar road biking.
- Benedict - best outhouse. Modern. Split into 2 buildings - move older kids into the other building.
- McNamara/Margy's - most original hut feel.

I didn't mention skiing quality - lots of sources for that. We usually snowshoe though - easier on the ascents. Besides the 10th Mountain site (huts.org), hutski.com is a great resource. Have fun!

Every year, we go to McNamara hut in April (except for the one year we went to Fabi Benedict). The huts are awesome - well maintained and clearly detailed so that using the stove/electricity/water is simple. The sleeping areas are cushioned. Booking is easy by phone and the website is great for finding availability. I wish we could go more often! Maybe next year.
