I joined a Paragon Guides trip utilising some 10th mountain division huts - Jackals, Fowlers-Hilliards and Shrine (Chucks Cabin, a private hut linked closely to the 10th mountain association). What can I say? If you want a memorable experience of a great alpine hut culture book yourself into one of the association's huts. Unbelievable!

We stayed at Walter's hut. The name 'hut' is a bit of a misnomer for this out of stater. It was a wonderful & large cabin well situated among the aspen trees. The price was shockingly good for the value received. Would certainly recommend and would go back.

Truly a perfect hut trip. Amazing snow base that was added to with a few days of dumping snowfall. Big, warm, cozy hut. Far enough from the masses to feel secluded but close enough to civilization to feed our more modern of needs before and after the trip. For a hut thats off the grid, this place feels far more like a cozy home than a cheap, tattered cabin.

Plenty of dry wood to fuel the two stoves. Water catch system is super easy to use (recommend boiling to be safe tho). Beds have unexpectedly comfy mattresses. Pillows are crappy and thin but there are more than enough to double or triple up. Enough light from the solar power to create a nice atmosphere once the sun departs. Deck is enormous and a great spot to hang out. Views are gorgeous. Two clean and well stocked outhouses are but steps away feom the house and make the process of going to the bathroom a very tolerable event.

I was surprised at how functional, clean and comfortable the hut was. Will be back next year for sure.

Where do I even begin? Let's just say my first backcountry hut experience was nothing short of awesome! We stayed at Janet's Cabin (Summit Huts Association) this past weekend for my birthday celebration and we were delighted. The cabin itself was beautiful and really had everything you needed. We met some really cool people who knew how everything worked and helped out with chores tremendously! If every hut experience is like this we will keep coming back again and again. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: This is not a hotel just to be clear!

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.
