March 1-4 - Hut Shindig-ski, San Juans, CO
« on: 03/12/13, 07:55 PM »

OPUS short for Ophir Pass Ultimate Ski hut, sits in the midst of the magnificent San Juan's of Colorado

Owner, designer and operator Bob Kingsley spent numerous years guiding amid Colorado’s renowned 10th Mountain Division Huts. During this time the game plan was put into motion... Bob's dream to find the perfect location to build  his own dream hut. In 2006 he purchased a 10 acre mining claim on the east side of Ophir pass.  After five years of hauling materials via helicopter, snowcat, and countless human powered trips to the remote location, the hut was finished and opened its doors for the 2012 winter season.............

Sweet!  Stayed there last year in their opening season.

How were the heli's?  They circled like flys when we were there.  Very spooky as they would drop bombs in the mornings and we always wondered if they thought about the folks touring out of the hut before they blew up the upper bowls.
