San Juan Huts

Escape to a backcountry hut and ski untouched lines.

The five San Juan Huts dot the impressive landscape on the north side of the Sneffels Range.


Basecamp at one backcountry hut or traverse between several for a hut to hut experience.


These huts provide access to ski terrain untouched by day skiers; ski off ridgetops, through alpine glades, or down open bowls and nestle by fire at night.


Your guide will work with you to craft a private ski trip for you or your group at the hut that best matches everyone’s goals and abilities.
