Janet’s is a unique option in the summer as it is accessible only by foot or bike, providing a quiet and remote experience.
Built in 1990, Janet’s Cabin is the first hut in the Summit Huts system. Named for Janet Boyd Tyler, an avid skier and long-time resident of nearby Vail who died of cancer in 1988, Janet’s Cabin is located in the roadless Guller Gulch between Copper Mountain Resort and Vail Pass.
Due to it’s location, helicopters were required to to build the cabin and continue to re-supply the hut with firewood and maintenance equipment each season.
Janet’s lifetime season ski pass to Vail Mountain is buried in the foundation.
