Our annual holiday hut trip tradition continues. This year five of us made the trek in to Tagert Hut on Christmas Eve. As is always the case with this ritual, and hut trips in general, it was a really good time.
We ventured to Barnard Hut for Thanksgiving this year, and Christy towed a cooked turkey in a sled the entire way.
A few years back our good friend Rickey Gates organized a guided, multi-day trail running adventure through the 10th Mountain Hut System. He called it the Hut Run Hut. The idea was to lead a group of adventurous trail runners along a roughly 100 mile route between Aspen and Vail. The trip was spread out over 6 days, and visited five different huts along the way.
Being a couple of Colorado ski mountaineers we’ve always had a thing for 14ers. There are so many in our backyard it’s hard not to hold a special place for them.

We skied Golden Horn, 13,780 ft. last weekend, down in the stunning Ice Lakes Basin area of the San Juans. The valley is a favorite of ours, in the summer months it’s all about the wildflowers, alpine lakes and scrambles on high 13ers.
We joined friends at the Lindley Hut last week and did a cool tour on and around nearby Star Peak. I’ve always considered April to be prime time for the Braun Huts…
The 20th annual Elk Mountains Grand Traverse was this past weekend. It was the 15th time both Christy and I have completed this race, nine of which have been as a team.
For five days last week the top men and women ski racers in the world descended on Aspen for the 2017 FIS World Cup Finals. It was the first time in twenty years that the event was held in the U.S. and while Aspen has a long history of hosting World Cup races through the […]
