guests to the Opus Hut (11,675 feet) above Ophir Colorado. He was actually working on behalf
of our sister company, Telluride Mountain Guides, which offers backcountry
guiding at our home base in Telluride, Colorado.
Here’s the first of our crew skinning up to the Opus Hut.
From the hut, it’s just a few powder turns to paradise.
Grabbing more fresh lines.
The Opus Hut is completely self-sufficient. Solar power and two wood stoves provide warmth, while a wood-fired sauna steams away the day’s fatigues. The hut also provides comfortable bedding, running water, and a meal plan upon request.
In this photo, our guests are VERY happy with the day’s powder skiing and, equally important, the aprés-ski soup!
