Section House is unique in that it is a historic cabin that was renovated to accomodate backcountry users.

Built in 1882 to house the railroad men and their families who maintained the section of the railway that traveled over Boreas Pass. The Denver, South Park and Pacific narrow gauge railroad traveled from Denver to Leadville in the height of the mining era the the route was abandoned in the early 1930’s and the Section House fell into disrepair.

Nearing collapse, the US Forest Service and the Colorado Historic Society teamed up to resurrect the Section House in 1993. By 1996, the building was completely restored with a new roof, windows, and interior finish.

Summit Huts Association and the US Forest Service began working together in 1996 to operate the Section House as a winter ski hut. SHA’s special use permit was granted in July 1997 and the Section House officially opened in December 1997.
