Hut Description

This hut is part of the 10th Mountain Hut Association hut system. The three level Sangree hut features Alpine Resource Center, which is a classroom with an extensive backcountry and history oriented library. The main level of the hut has two wood burning  stoves (one for heat and snowmelt, the other is a cook stove and oven), as well as two propane ranges and all the dishes you need to whip up some high country gourmet. The hut sleeps about 16 with two separated bedrooms upstairs, along with a communal sleeping area.
This hut has a great layout and a beautiful front deck and windows facing the mountains.
