PLANNING A WINTER HUT TRIP:
A hut trip definitely takes a little preparation. Being pre-pared can
make all the difference between a good trip or an amazing trip. Choosing
a group leader will help you immensely in your organization. You'll
also need to take into account the weather, dividing up the load to
be carried in, maps, transportation to the trailhead, etc. It is a good
idea to research each hut at which you may be thinking of staying, and
hut trips in general if you've never been.
You'll need to take into account your skiing/snowshoeing experience
and fitness levels. The approach to most huts is physically demanding
and some backcountry skills and avalanche awareness are necessary. This
may play a role in choosing a hut. Guide services may be available in
certain areas if you need them.
All huts range in size, some sleeping less than ten while others will
sleep 20 people. Huts will be booked to capacity and therefore are often
shared by more than one group. (Sleeping arrangements decided upon by
hut users upon arrival at hut.) Reserving trips far in advance will
guarantee you space on the dates that you desire.
Amenities will vary greatly from hut to hut. General amenities: wood-burning
stoves for heating, fire-wood, matches, propane burners for cooking,
cooking/eating utensils, bathroom, toilet paper, mattresses, and pillows.
In the winter snow is melted on the wood stove for water. Drinking water
is the responsibility of the user.
The right equipment to get you there: snowshoes or skis with metal edges
and climbing skins, backpack. You will need to bring a sleeping bag,
food, personal and emergency gear. Dogs are not allowed.
Reservations can be made by phone. NOTE: Revervations for the Summit
and Alfred Braun hut systems can be made through the 10th Mountain Division
although they are separately owned and operated. Rates are usually per-person/per-night.
The sooner you can make your reservation the better because choice dates
tend to be filled quickly!
