        Embark on a rugged adventure at 11,950’ at the top of Weston Pass near Leadville, in Colorado’s highest backcountry hut lodging. Weston Pass Hut is accessible while offering wilderness seclusion. The hut offers four private bedrooms and a large communal area provides a unique experience for backcountry skiers, wildlife enthusiasts, x-c motorcyclists, hikers, mountain bikers, and anyone else who enjoys backcountry adventures.

        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.  In the winter, skiers can access terrain ranging from steep bowls that challenge seasoned skiers to mild slopes that invite beginners.

        The hut is suitable for diverse groups of users with varying backcountry experience. During much of the summer, guests 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. During the winter, guests can access the hut on skis, snowshoes, snowmobiles, or snowcats.
