The promise of a back-country, wilderness experience is fulfilled completely during our multi-day hiking adventure in the heart of Colorado's incomparable high country. By day we explore portions of the 10th Mountain Trail System, the country's most extensive, backcountry accommodation-served trail network. Gaze at the stars at night before settling into the comforts of a European-style chalet.

With stunning locations and sweeping mountain views, these charming chalets are kept cozy with solar lighting, wood stoves, vaulted ceilings, and bay windows. After a day on the trail snuggle up to a good book, or relax on the sun deck and soak in the view.
