Skiing the Rocky Mountains Backcountry, Colorado
Choose your own adventure in the continent’s largest hut system, a network of 14 huts connecting over 300 miles of skiable routes. Conceived by Fritz Benedict, a former 10th Mountain Division soldier, the hut system spans the division’s former training grounds and the best of Colorado’s pristine ski terrain between Aspen, Vail, and Leadville. Have yourself an overnighter, or link up a handful of the upscale huts—complete with wood-fired stoves and private rooms—for a custom, self-guided ski tour (from $33 per person, per night; huts.org)
