Our annual Christmas Eve Hut Trip, now in its 9th year, was to Tagert Hut. Five of us made the trip up to celebrate the holiday and do a little skiing on Christmas morning.
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. (more…)
We ventured to Barnard Hut for Thanksgiving this year, and Christy towed a cooked turkey in a sled the entire way.
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 holiday season is here again, and as much as it’s fun to see town so busy, it can be intense at times. We’ve been lucky that for the past six years we’ve been able to escape the madness for a night and head up to a hut for Christmas Eve with some friends. (more…)
I recently joined two friends on a last minute trip to the Lindley Hut and we had two incredible days touring on and around the nearby peaks and couloirs. I thought I would share an assortment of photos and let them speak for the adventure.
At the start of every new season we like to set some goals, and we'll lay out a checklist of outings and activities we hope to complete.

(Christy here) For the second year in a row, we escaped the hustle-and-bustle of the holidays in Aspen to meet friends at the Green-Wilson hut for Christmas. Starting from Ashcroft on Christmas Eve afternoon, we skinned the five-plus miles to the hut under starry skies. Around 6:30pm we saw the lights of our cozy mountain cabin and were instantly greeted with holiday drinks and creative hors d'oeuvres. (more…)
The holiday season is upon us, and if you live and work in a resort town such as Aspen, it's not quite the vacation you might think.
