The Peter Estin Hut

Since my last post talked about my favorite place to ski (Highland Bowl)… I guess I should clarify, that’s my favorite ski area-based place to ski. However, I did my first hut trip last winter, and so I’d have to say the backcountry is my overall favorite place to ski!

This photo shows the Peter Estin Hut, about 25 miles SSE of Eagle, CO. That was the destination for our group in March 2008. We got lucky with perfect weather and skiing conditions, and even did a full moon ski one night!

For more, you can see the video of this trip, which I created from some of my favorite photos and video clips!
