SHA-Color-Cut-out-Logo-webThis year the Summit Hut Association will be hosting their 13th Annual Backcountry Ball on Friday October 10, 2014 at The Maggie Restaurant from 6pm to 9pm



This is an annual fall favorite! Join other hut and backcountry enthusiasts for a fun evening featuring a casual dinner, socializing, and as always, a killer silent auction! Tickets will be $25 for adults and include food, 2 drink tickets, and a pint glass. Kids $10 (no drink tickets or pint glass included). 250 tickets will be available and may be purchased in advance (until Thursday, October 9) here or at the door. The silent auction is always a highlight of this event and there’s something for everyone! Outdoor gear and clothing, ski passes and tickets, scenic train rides, massages, yoga – we’ve got it all.


Summit Huts Association provides inspirational backcountry refuge for self-propelled mountain recreational users and provides a unique venue in spectacular natural settings for community, charitable and educational programs. Summit Huts Association strives to provide opportunities for education about self- sufficiency, the high altitude environment, backcountry ethics, winter and avalanche safety, and other relevant topics.


Summit Huts Association is a non-profit organization, founded in 1987 and dedicated to developing and maintaining a system of backcountry cabins linked by non-motorized trails in Summit County, Colorado. SHA operates under special use permit from the Forest Service, USDA, in the White River and Pike-San Isabel National Forests. SHA is a separate organization from 10th Mountain Division Hut Association and is responsible for the construction, maintenance, and supply of its huts. SHA works with 10th Mountain, which takes reservations and handles some marketing of the Summit Huts.


When fully developed, the Summit Huts System will consist of seven or more cabins. Currently, the Summit Huts System connects with the 10th Mountain Huts system in the Vail Pass area. Future plans are to link the 10th Mountain huts and Summit Huts with the communities of Copper Mountain, Frisco, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Montezuma, and the surrounding backcountry. Presently, Summit Huts Association operates four huts: Janet’s Cabin near Copper Mountain Resort, Francie’s Cabin near Breckenridge, and the Section House and Ken’s Cabin on Boreas Pass east of Breckenridge.
