Continental Divide & Point Breeze Cabins Point Breeze Cabin

Point Breeze Cabin is a privately owned hut, booked through 10th Mountain. This hut is relatively easy to get to and also serves as a connection between the 10th Mountain Division Hut, Sangree’s Hut, Emmelyn Hut, and Vance’s Cabin. The Point Breeze Cabin sits just a few hundred yards from the Continental Divide Cabin. In winter there are over fifteen miles of rewarding beginner to intermediate cross country ski and snowshoe trails close by. Nearby Chicago Ridge and Ski Cooper offer the closest “turns”.

On your way to/from the cabins in summer, consider a bike ride along the paved Leadville Mineral Belt Trail, a train ride on the Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad, a visit to the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum, or a visit to the Leadville National Fish Hatchery. These activities are great for kids and adults, and are a fun way to learn about Leadville’s amazing history. Also, the Colorado Trail route to the cabins offers a great opportunity for kids to find the blue diamonds and lead the way, and once you arrive, don’t forget a visit to the nearby tipi!
