When you think hut-to-hut traverses you often think of the Alps but right here in North America we have a number of killer hut-to-hut traverses. Backcountry Magazine brings us a look at six of them. 

HUT ROUTES: SIX NORTH AMERICAN HUT-TO-HUT TRAVERSES

“Hut traverses were born in Europe, where groups like the Swiss Alpine Club began building and managing high-mountain shelters as early as the mid 19th century. And while North America can’t hold a candle to Europe’s extensive mountain-chalet infrastructure and deep hut heritage, there are more than 200 backcountry huts, lodges and yurts throughout the U.S. and Canada. Link some together, and you’ve got a Euro-style ski-touring experience (schnitzel not included).”

BIG SHEEP TRAVERSE – WALLOWA MOUNTAINS, ORE.

 

TELLURIDE TO OURAY TRAVERSE – SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS, COLO.

 

TETON WILDERNESS HUT TO HUT – TETON MOUNTAINS, WYO.

 

WAPTA TRAVERSE – CANADIAN ROCKIES, ALBERTA/B.C.

 

SUN VALLEY LINKUP – SAWTOOTH MOUNTAINS, IDAHO
