Vail Back Country Hut Trips

10th Mountain manages a system of 29 backcountry huts in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, connected by 350 miles of suggested routes.


We provide a unique opportunity for backcountry skiing, mountain biking, or hiking while staying in safe, comfortable shelter. Enjoy a great variety 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. Reservations for Hut Use are Required.

Most of the huts sleep sixteen people, but size ranges from 3 beds to 20. Beds are usually divided among three or four shared sleeping rooms. Huts are booked to capacity and are often shared by more than one group. Overflow camping around the huts is not permitted.

10th Mountain owned huts are equipped with wood burning stoves for heating and cooking, firewood and starter paper, matches, propane burners for cooking, photovoltaic lighting, cooking and eating utensils, TP, mattresses, pillows, and decks. You need to bring a sleeping bag, food, personal, and emergency gear. Hut users melt snow for water in the winter and collect water from streams in the summer. Hut users are responsible for drinking water purification. Amenities vary greatly, hut to hut, so please check the Huts & Routes section of this site (see menu to left) for specific information on individual huts.


The huts do not have resident caretakers, however, 10th Mountain field personnel may be encountered on the trails or at the huts.
