Built in 1985, Peter Estin Hut was the third publicly funded hut added to the 10th Mountain system. Funds were donated by the Estin family in memory of Peter Estin. If you have used other "standard" 10th Mountain Division Huts, the Peter Estin will look familiar. It stands two stories high with a commodious deck jutting from the front door. Plenty of glass faces the south views of the Elk Range and Williams mountains.

Layout and capacity: 4 single beds downstairs, 2 private bedrooms upstairs with one double bed each, plus 8 beds in a communal sleeping area upstairs. Capacity 16.

Hut Location: Peter Estin Hut is located in a clearing on a timbered saddle just northwest of Charles Peak (12,050 feet), with a clear view of the Elk and Williams mountains to the south. Centered in a vast forested area, the hut provides access to myriad trails, dirt roads, and one alpine ridge.

Nearby Skiing
Prospect Peak and Charles Peak have good skiing very close to the hut.
