10th Mountain Division Hut Association - Help?

Hey guys...

I think this just may be my first post on the "Winter Buzz" side of Mountain Buzz. I am an avid kayaker and up until now I haven't required the assistance of the "Winter Buzz", but now I am needing some help.

Is there ANYONE out there that is familiar with (ie...have skied into these huts), the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association, specifically the Braun & Friends Huts?

Thank you in advance, Lenny.

Friends Hut

It's been a few years now, but I do recall the Friends hut was a bit of a grunt to get into. Not steep or technical....just a good long hump, skiing in. The skiing above the F.H.is outstanding!

Hal,

Thanks for your post and I would like to shoot you a PM for a few more specifics, if that's cool? Sounds like you know this area somewhat.

Lenny.

Thank you for the post. I have tons of "online" details, I am specifically searching for someone that personally knows the "Braun & Friends Huts" area and has ski'd in this area.

Thank you, Lenny.

I have never been there but I am such an awesome skier ( on the flats ) that I am sure I can make up whatever beta you need.

They don't call me betaman for nothin'
