Hut, Hut, Hooray! Book your hut trip with Colorado Adventure Guides this winter

Untouched powder, the freshest immaculate turns, perma-grin camaraderie and winter memories of a lifetime are yours this season.

Hut-trippers and backcountry powder hounds are eager to get outside this winter, but hut reservations are hard to come by. Gravity Haus has you covered with an exclusive partnership with Colorado Adventure Guides (CAG). The Breck-based professional outfitter has carved out a season filled with hut trips, backcountry skiing and splitboarding, and high-alpine educational opportunities.

“If there was ever a year to take that first step into the backcountry, this is it,” says Colorado Adventure Guides Owner and Lead Guide Abe Pacharz. “There’s a lot in question this year and the backcountry is a great alternative to resort skiing.”

Colorado Adventure Guides Winter Offerings: These Trips are Booking Up Fast!

Gravity Haus members receive 20% off guided experiences (excluding AIARE Avalanche Rescue Courses and Trips).

Duck Lake Huts | Julie’s Inn and Blue Piano Cabins

Open for booking directly through Colorado Adventure Guides

Never before accessible to the public, these rustic secluded cabins sit on Guanella Pass at 11,000 feet and have, until this year, served as the private winter huts for the Coors Family. Book your private backcountry hut trip with custom offerings through CAG that include lodging and an intro to backcountry hut life, an AIARE Avalanche Companion Rescue Course or a Private AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Safety Course. All overnight stays include a hut helper that will meet you at the trailhead, guide you to your cabin and help you settle in for days of adventure. Request your trip dates directly through CAG.

Anna’s Cabin

  • AIARE Level 1 Trip: January 8-10, 2021; March 12-14, 2021
  • AIARE Level 2 Trip: February 5-7, 2021

Francie’s Cabin

  • Intro to Backcountry Skiing and Hut Tripping: March 1-3, 2021
  • AIARE Level 1 Trip: February 19-21, 2021

Not bookable yet. Coming soon!

Colorado’s most visited hut was built in 1994 just south of Breckenridge. Learn the ins and outs of backcountry travel in the winter and how to properly execute a winter hut trip. Or sign on for a three-day hut-based avalanche safety adventure. At the end of the day, relax fireside or kick back in Francie’s sauna.

Hut and Guide Services

Already have your hut trip booked? But need a little extra guidance? CAG can guide you into the hut, come up on the second day and provide an avalanche educational program, or guide you on a safe backcountry skiing or splitboarding excursion in the surrounding mountains.

Your Backcountry Mentor

Gravity Haus members can call on CAG for mentor days or private guided backcountry sessions at 20% off. Round up a handful of friends and book a full day of guided skiing and hands-on education. No backcountry experience needed. A guide will walk you through executing a safe backcountry tour, show you how to choose zones, monitor the forecast, review maps and have a blast.

“Not everybody is ready to make that leap to the backcountry. There’s a process involved. We’re here to educate people,” Pacharz says.

COVID Note: CAG backcountry and educational experiences are held outside with small groups that are easily spaced out. Hut trips combine a mix of groups unless a private trip is booked. CAG is hoping indoor group gathering restrictions are eased in coming months and hut trips can include full groups. Trips are refundable if public health restrictions prohibit gathering.
