Spent 4 days in the hut. The Staff and accommodations were unrivaled! This is an experience EVERYONE should have. Bob, Hanna, Fiona and Chris are the BEST! 4 Days of skiing the best terrain in CO and 4 nights of absolute comfort. The beds are super comfy and the food is perfect! Do yourself a favor and DO NOT miss...

Hut was great, food was great, sauna was awesome, staff was very knowledgeable and sharing of strategic information regarding surrounding aspects and weather affects. This is the best terrain of all the huts I have ever skied. The question to ask is how big do you want to go? Bob runs a tight ship and this is the cleanest hut...

Spent 3 days at the Opus Hut, a wonderful experience. Bob and his staff were not only excellent chefs, but were fun to hang with to learn more about the hut, the history, and the area. Definitely will go back!

When you first reach the hut amazement sets in. I wondered how in the world he built this place and thought of all the sweat and tears that must have been shed. Bob our host was a history teacher on the area and in the beautiful San Juan mountains. We hit it perfect as the aspen trees were changing colors...

Good experience. Great food. Great location and hiking straight from hut. Nice that we were able to have our dogs with us. Bob has a dog that is stays there too, although He was a bit territorial. Enjoyed our stay.

This was by far the best Hut trip I've ever been on. All 15 of us were well accommodated and fed amazing meals by Bob , Fiona, and Chris. The terrain is unreal with great views and skiing options on all aspects. I definitely plan to come back next year.

How Bob managed to build such a super hotel (hut) near the top of a mountain pass is beyond imagining. Not only a lovely (did I say large) building, but complete with perhaps the nicest sauna anyone has ever seen this side of Finland Cant say enough about this jewel of a property and the love and care that goes...

This is a bit of a chalet/hut hybrid IMO, definitely more chalet in amenities, all its principle operations and features made especially remarkable by the knowledge that it was all, as I understand it, contrived and constructed by hut proprietor Bob. Our only prior experience being Andean huts, we were pleasantly confused when ushered up to the dining area and...

This Charming little hut was our home away from home for one night. The views were incredible. You can tell a lot of love and thought has been put in to the design and construction. Every window had a picture perfect view. Bob was a knowledgeable host with an extensive range of information about the area and hiking. He is...

We visited the Opus Hut in late June with snow still on the ground. Our experience was true to the European alpine mountain hut tradition that provides shelter and amenities for hikers so that they do not have to pack in. Those seeking a luxury hotel experience, or traveling with children who might not appreciate the alpine hikers' quest should...

“The room configurations are weird. There are two rooms for 5 people each upstairs and two rooms for 3 people each downstairs. The downstairs rooms tend to be freezing. The upstairs rooms are more temperate but you do have to sleep with 4 other people so make sure your roomies don't snore.”
