The backcountry hut scene has exploded in Colorado (I said that twenty years ago, yeah, and never expected it to keep detonating this way). During our recent trip to the shiny new Sisters hut, I sat down with Backcountry Magazine founder and guidebook author Brian Litz, with Doug (Cripple Creek owner) as MC. A nice bit of oral history resulted, including discussion of the most spiritual hut in Colorado, the Friends. I’m biased, so I dug an image out of my archives (below). Enjoy our history.
