10th Mountain Division Hut Association
Ranked #5 of 31 Speciality Lodging in Aspen
Reviewed 4 March 2017

Three weeks ago we skied up to the Jackal Hut, in the Rockies above the old Camp Hale site. There was a lot of fresh snow, and too many snowmobiles roaring around the valley, but once we started up, the noise faded away. It was a pretty steep climb, but the hut, like so many of these mountain jewels, is situated in an open yet somewhat protected spot near the ring top, with magnificent views to the south, west and northwest. We had a fantastic time skiing the meadows and glades nearly, and it was a joy to return to the hut afterwards. These huts are very well built, beautiful, and practical. We had a group of 15, and plenty of room. There are two elevated pit toilets close by, so you can just wear slippers to get there. The wood stoves, which include an old cook stove, worked really well with all the firewood we needed right out back. This really is a "bucket list" kind of activity: lifetime memories are made up there! Just be sure to reserve early (they have an excellent website explaining how to do everything), as they fill up quickly. Don't be afraid to share with others, who will quickly become friends. You meet the nicest people at the huts.

Room Tip: Be the first one up the hill in your party, so you get to chose your sleeping spot.

Don't come to Aspen thinking you're going to stay at a 10th Mountain Hut unless you've made reservations months and months in advance, especially in the winter.
The huts are at high elevations in some of the most scenic, quiet places in the Colorado mountains between Breckenridge and Aspen and Crested Butte.
You should generally expect to either ski into a hut in the winter or to hike to it when the snow is gone.

Room Tip: Don't go on a hut trip without backcountry experience or someone who has it.

You will work harder, take more pictures, and eat more than you would on any other weekend away. The huts are stocked with everything you will need to put together amazing cuisine. Make sure to bring ear plugs for the additional 'hut' noises that may occur. Overall wonderful experience, snuggled into these well built huts in the wilderness.

Room Tip: First come first served on these huts, so try to arrive early in the afternoon.

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
