Aspen Haute Route

** Due to current COVID protocols we are only offering this trip to private groups with a maximum of two households to not exceed 7 persons, including guides**

Join us April 19-23, 2021 for our annual classic, "Aspen Haute Route"/ Star Peak circumnavigation hut adventure. This is without a doubt one of the most impressive hut-to-hut traverses in all of Colorado. We will ski over three 12,000' high mountain passes off the shoulders of Star, Taylor, and Pearl Peaks, with overnights at the favourite and beautiful Opa's Taylor Hut, then the classic remote Friends Hut, and 2 final nights at the Tagert.  

April is a fantastic time for ski touring the high alpine in Colorado with typically stable snow conditions and the possibility of ski mountaineering conditions and/or pure powder. On this tour you will develop skills that will help for a classic European Haute traverse, whether it is general navigation and winter mountain travel, avalanche assessment, or use of crampons and ice axe for steeper climbing and skiing. Our guides will educate you and show you a great time along the way!

To join us on this trip you should have strong fitness and downhill skiing abilities, as well as relative experience/comfort on your AT gear or splitboard. Price starts at $1600 per person, based on a 4:1 ratio. Price includes AMGA/AIARE trained/certified guides, 3% USFS surcharge, private huts for our group, all needed Alpine Touring gear (including avalanche safety equipment – beacon, shovel, probe), and new The North Face backpacks/lightweight sleeping bags; all food, planning and shopping are also included in this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
