The Gore Range Group has Janet's Cabin reserved for the nights of Thursday Feb 28th to Friday March 2nd. 


We have 16 of the 20 spots reserved for CMC members.  The other 4 spots have been taken by known Summit County Hut enthausists (& Euchre players).

The trail starts from Copper Mountain's West Village / Union Camp.  Back County skiers will be taking the K & L lifts over to the gate off the West 10 Mile Trail.  Snowshoers will have to start West Villange ~30 mins early and hike the extra mile to the trailhead (off West 10 Mile run).

Distance for snow shoers is 5.5 miles, for skiers 4.5 miles.  There is a great heart break of a climb just before you reach the hut.  The back country skiing & exploring is wonderful around & above the cabin.  Skins required on back country skis.

We will be doing group dinners and asking for volunteers ask we get closer to the trip.  Breakfasts & Lunches are on your own.  We may orangize group coffee.  The cost of the trip (excluding food) is $92.85 / person
