    Hey folks

    Anyone done any touring in Colorado, Utah or thereabouts using the 10th Mountain Huts.

    I’ve heard of Polar Star, Eismann, Fowler Hilliard but only by name. There are many others.

    Just wondering if it’s possible (and or worthwhile) looking at a week or a few weeks skiing backcountry hut to hut? Or not......

    Looking for first hand experience if anyone has any experience doing so...

    Cheers....

    I've not visited any of the 10th Mountain Division huts but I had a pleasant trip to the San Juan Huts in Colorado last January. I posted a trip report under the heading "Trip Report San Juan Huts". You can do a hut to hut trip between the five San Juan Huts and also visit the slightly more upmarket Opus Hut which is in the same range.
