Francie’s Cabin Interior Renovation & Sustainability Upgrade Plans

Coming Summer 2021

Francie’s Cabin is the most visited overnight hut in Colorado!

If you have experienced the warmth of waking up in Francie’s Cabin – sipping coffee and looking out the bay windows at the potential for backcountry adventures in the new fallen snow; then you understand the joy of the Colorado backcountry hut experience.  Having turned 25 years old, Francie’s Cabin is in need of significant renovations and sustainability upgrades to ensure warm, dry and happy mountain experiences for another 25 years.

Here are the proposed plans- remodeling from the new hardwood floors and up! Our goal is to raise $150,000 for the interior restoration and sustainable systems upgrades for our legacy hut – ensuring decades of continued backcountry experiences for our guests!

To do this, we are asking for your help!
