The 10th Mountain Division Hut system is located in the mountains of Colorado between Aspen, Leadville, and Vail.
Styled after the European tradition of hut-to-hut travel, 24 huts provide overnight shelter for seasoned backcountry skiers and riders, snowshoers, mountain bikers, and backpackers.
Linked by over 300 miles of trails, the 10th Mountain Huts provide access to spectacular terrain within the White River, Arapaho, and San Isabel National Forests. The huts are situated between 9,700 and 11,700 feet in elevation and are designed for experienced backcountry travelers.
Most of the huts are open for winter use from Thanksgiving until April 30 and for summer use from July 1 until September 30. Prices for the 10th Mountain huts range from $22 to $35 per person per night. Reservations are required.
Note that the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association owns many of the huts, but also takes reservations for other hut systems in Colorado such as the Braun Huts and Summit Huts. For the purposes of their website, such huts are referred to as part of the 10th Mountain Hut System. The name of the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association memorializes the 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army, which saw heroic combat during World War II.
