The Summit Huts Association (SHA) is a nonprofit organization that helps people play in some of the tallest mountains in America. SHA does so by maintaining four high-altitude cabins between Searle Pass and Boreas Pass along the Continental Divide in Summit County, Colorado. Since the first of those cabins was built more than 20 years ago, countless adventurers from near and far have made themselves at home in the rustic but well-equipped huts, whether for a night or a week. To visit one of these huts — and ski powder, hike or bike high-alpine singletrack, or just sit in front of the window deep in thought — is a celebration of the high life many of us know and love.   Every autumn, Summit Huts’ supporters, friends, and mountain kin gather to partake in an informal yet rousing coming-of-winter party known as the Backcountry Ball. This year will be the 15th edition of the Ball, a tenure that speaks to the strong backcountry community associated with Summit Huts as well as that community’s desire to have a good time. The Ball is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Summit Huts, and to keep it that way, we are fortunate to have a wonderful group of supporters both in the business sense as well as the social sense. People attend the party to catch up with old friends, drink a few frosty microbrews or pop, enjoy a hearty meal, and check out some of the best ski and outdoors gear known to man (and woman).   The Backcountry Ball has long presented an excellent opportunity for businesses to be a part of a cool, grassroots, organic event while reaching an authentic audience. For more information on sponsorship, please contact the office. From the large silent auction to a handful of sponsorship avenues, Summit Huts is grateful for your consideration and we hope to see you in October as we prepare for the deep winter ahead.   Tickets are available now for $30/adults and $10/kids. Prices at the door will be $40/adults and $10/kids.
