Welcome to the 10th Mountain Division Huts

10th Mountain is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that manages a system of 38 backcountry huts in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, connected by 350 miles of suggested routes. We provide a unique opportunity for backcountry skiing, mountain biking, or hiking while staying in secure, comfortable shelter.

Our name honors the men of 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army, who trained during World War II at Camp Hale in central Colorado. Hut visitors share the special spirit of these individuals, especially their pursuit of excellence, self reliance, and love of the outdoors.


Situated among some of the tallest peaks in the lower 48 and nestled in awe-inspiring meadows, valleys, and forests, the 10th Mountain Division huts are gatekeepers for unrivaled year-round recreation. Winter skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers will discover limitless playgrounds out the front door. Summertime visitors can bike, hike, climb, and romp from sun up to sun down.  Explore the Huts


Deep in the remote alpine, connections are made. Absent the distractions of modern living, groups of people discover a renewed love for one another and the world around them when they gather around our huts’ massive dining room tables or watch the sun slip behind the horizon at dusk. Our huts also encourage an immersion in nature, which fosters a crucial connection to the environment, helps develop strong ethics and self-reliance, and creates stewards of public lands.


The famed 10th Mountain Division of the United States Army trained during World War II at Camp Hale, Colorado, to prepare for Europe’s challenging terrain. Upon his return from war, Fritz Benedict, a WWII 10th Mountain soldier, envisioned building a system of connected huts similar to those in the Alps and in 1982 the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association formed in honor of the 10th Mountain soldiers and their pursuit of excellence, self-reliance, and love of the outdoors.
