10th Mountain Division Hut Association has its headquarters in Aspen, Colorado. They provide an opportunity for backcountry skiing, mountain biking, or hiking with a hut-to-hut system of 34 huts connected by 350 miles of suggested routes. This is serious backcountry travel; the average route is six to seven miles long with an average 2.000-foot climb from an 8,000-foot trailhead. Someone in each self-guided group must have leadership, route finding, avalanche awareness, and first aid skills. Nine outfitters are authorized to guide on the hut-to-hut system, four winter and five summer. They are Aspen Alpine Guides, Aspen Expeditions, Paragon Guides, and Crested Butte Mountain Guides for winter. Summer guides are Aspen Alpine Guides, Indian Summer Outfitters, Paragon Guides, The World Outdoors, and Timberline Bike Tours.
