An Aspen Bucket List for Winter

BY Tess Weaver Strokes | November 6, 2018 | Feature Features

Skiing and hut trips are musts for an Aspen winter.
A winter night spent in a cozy backcountry hut is a Colorado must-do.


Classic: Close to home hut trip
Of the seven huts in the Alfred A. Braun Hut System, the Markley Hut and the Lindley Hut are the most accessible, with approaches less than two hours. Aspen locals frequently ski to the Markley Hut on a weeknight and make it to work on time the next morning. Rates vary

Alternative: Women’s hut trip
Aspen Alpine Guides’ Leave the Boys Behind program fosters all-female wilderness experiences, like its Backcountry Basics McNamara Hut Trip, March 6 to 8. Female skiers and snowboarders will spend three days and two nights learning about hut-trip planning, avalanche safety and backcountry navigation. $685

Upgrade: Epicurean ski hut trip
Imagine skiing to a backcountry hut with a private ski guide where the fire is already glowing and a private chef is laying out an exquisite spread of appetizers. Dreams do come true: Aspen Expeditions offers full customizable options for groups of all sizes and ability levels. Rates vary
