Polar Star Inn is a privately owned backcountry lodge, booked by 10th Mountain. (Another nearby structure, Carl's Cabin, is part of Polar Star but booked separately). Polar Star Inn is a tall-standing structure with a big deck that looks west over the Colorado Plateau: a sunset watcher's paradise. There are five private bedrooms and running water (summer only) that makes kitchen work a snap. The Inn was built in 1987.
Layout and capacity: Downstairs: 1 bedroom with single bunk bed Upstairs: several semi-private bedrooms and a communal sleeping area. Capacity 17.
Additional Amenities: The Polar Star Inn has running water from a spring-fed cistern during the summer and there is a propane grill out on the deck year-round. There was once a sauna, but it burned down years ago.
Nearby Skiing: There's some fairly good, but easy and short tree skiing on The Polar Line of the lower slopes of New York Mountain. In good weather and conditions, the summit of New York Mountain Climb is a good tour, with great views as you might expect.
