Aspen is home to an extensive system of backcountry huts, which can offer skiers/riders of all abilities a complete escape into the wilderness. Both the 10th Mountain and Braun Hut Systems can be accessed just a few miles from town!
Suitable for individuals, groups, and families of all ages and abilities, snowshoe or ski to one of these huts, and enjoy a relaxing night by the fire as a reward for your efforts. For backcountry skiers, many of these remote mountain cabins offer exciting ski-touring / split-boarding options in untracked powder right out the front door! Trips are fully customizable and options exist for multi-day outings with our professional AMGA trained/certified ski guides.
Choose our Standard Hut Trip if you want to take care of booking the hut, planning/buying food on your own, and if you have your own AT gear (complimentary use of AEW avalanche safety gear can be arranged if needed).
