8 off-the-grid huts for the ultimate Colorado backcountry getaway

Aubrey Beth Photography

From rustic, far-from-civilization cabins to brand-new lodges with chef-prepared meals Tucked into Colorado?s expansive fir and pine forests sit dozens of backcountry huts?off-the-grid cabins designed as shelter for overnight mountain adventures. They?re located throughout the state, with some taking ?rustic? to heart, and others coming completely furnished and with perks like heated floors.
All of the huts, however, require some effort (and snow safety awareness) to get to. Many are accessible by a short snowshoe, while the most remote require lengthy ski tours (aka skinning, or attaching adhesive strips to the bottom of your skis so you can walk uphill). However you get there, the hard-won payoff is a stay at a secluded wood cabin, where you can relax, refuel, and experience the wilds of Colorado without the thrum of too many fellow adventurers. Here, we?re sharing eight of our top backcountry hut recommendations across the state. Make reservations now?these venues may feel closer to the stars than to civilization, but they?re still popular.
