Weston Pass Hut
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, please consider booking the entire hut for your party. Enhanced cleaning protocols are being followed.
Embark on a rugged adventure at 11,950’ at the top of Weston Pass near Leadville, in Colorado’s highest backcountry hut lodging. The hut offers four private bedrooms and a unique experience for backcountry skiers, wildlife enthusiasts, x-c motorcyclists, hikers, mountain bikers, and other adventurers.
Built with locally harvested and milled beams and a unique tundra roof, the hut faces an open valley with stunning views of Mount Holy Cross and the surrounding mountains.
In the summer, you can access miles of hiking trails in wilderness frequented by elk, hawks, bears, moose, deer, and coyotes. During much of the summer, you can drive, hike, or bike to the hut from either Lake or Park county. Although we recommend high clearance vehicles, the unpaved roads on Weston Pass are well-maintained. Know before your go, check current fire restrictions.
In the winter, you can access the hut on skis, snowshoes, snowmobiles, or snowcats. During your stay, you can ski terrain ranging from steep bowls to mild, beginner-friendly slopes.
Getting to Weston Pass Hut in the winter is a strenuous adventure. It is strongly advised that you or someone in your party has experience with backcountry skiing, or with snowmobiles if snowmobiling up, before embarking on this trip.
