The history of hut skiing in Colorado and why you should book your next trip.
I had the the chance to sit down with two of the all time great Colorado hut skiers Lou Dawson and Brian Litz at the brand new Sisters Cabin located on the flanks of Mount Baldy outside Breckenridge. If you haven't been hut skiing before its time to get going!

I believe there is almost an inexhaustible demand for hut skiing in the United States. I waited at the computer for 8 am to hit the day bookings opened for the new Sister's Cabin and it was already too late, all weekends were full from the moment it opened until the snow was gone. It really is about who you know, so when Lou called about going up there with him and Brian, I grabbed the mobile recording rig through it in with the guitars and headed uphill.
Totally Deep is working Aspen Expeditions on an amazing Aspen Haute Route. If you can get the days April 8-12 together we are going to be doing an amazing guided and catered hut to hut ski including some of the classic ski mountaineering lines of the Elk Mountains.
