My family and I took our second month-long road trip around the West this summer, and the Opus Hut was definitely one of the most memorable and unique experiences we had (our first time staying in a hut), out of both trips. We're hikers, backpackers, and campers, and now with our new baby (seven months old), adventure seems hard to... More

So, if you are a person who has stayed in a lot in huts, and yurts, you will love it, you don't need to read any further. Buy the meal plan. If you are like me, you have hiked, camped etc, but haven't stayed in a hut...read on. I booked the hut a few months ago, after reading about it... More

If you purchase the meal plan you will not go hungry. Bob is a great cook, impressing my wife with his Gluten free home made cooking. The facilities are better than any other huts I have been to, spacious with a sauna. I made a couple of mistakes, I can use my cross country gear at the tenth mountain huts... More

Opus hut is something to experience for all. Just the terrain surrounding the hut is something for all to behold. It was wonderful to wake up each morning and be surrounded by the beauty of the San Juan Mountains. We visited the hut in the winter and the skiing was unbelievable, however it looks like the summer hikes and views... More

As a group of back-country ski friends, we have stayed at a few other huts/yurts throughout the mountain west, and none of our other experiences can compare to the level of comfort, enjoyment, quality, and beauty we experienced at the Opus Hut. The scale and accessibility of the skiing terrain is amazing, and the quality of the skiing was outdone... More

This was our first official backcountry "hut trip", and I'm pretty sure Opus Hut has spoiled us for good! The hut is near the summit of Ophir Pass, approximately 3 miles west of the Hwy 550 trailhead. We snowshoed in, which took us about 3.5 hours, with heavy packs. The hut is completely self-sufficient, with solar power, running water, composting... More

I have stayed in many Colorado alpine huts, this is the finest. The lodge is near the summit of Ophir Pass 3 miles West of the hwy 550 Trailhead, and is a two year old ‘green’ superbly constructed building, at 11,600’. The Jeep trail is very tame and I’d say most 2 wd cars could make it up, though the... More

We had the best "girls weekend" at the Opus Hut. The food was amazing, hiking spectacular and the cabin had the perfect amenities while still being completely off the grid. I recommend getting the dinner/breakfast service, it's such a nice bonus.

We have stayed at the Opus Hut in the winter and just this past weekend (8/3/13). The cabin is incredibly built, very comfortable, and clean. All amenities make it a true luxury (in the back country sense) accommodation you would never expect at 11,000+ feet!! The hiking was incredible, then we got to come back and relax at this wonderful... More

We have 2 kids (13 and 10) and we stayed for 2 incredible summer days and nights. The hut is a work of art yet not at all precious. Comfy to hang in, great meals, and the (new) sauna is a perfect end to the day. The views out the window are stunning, and Bob can recommend a hike for... More
