Hut Trip: Polar Star Inn

Polar Star Inn is one of 16 10th Mountain Division Huts, located about 14 miles southeast of Eagle and 14 miles southwest of Vail. On Saturday, 16 of us climbed the 6 mile, 2000 foot trail to the hut, located just above 11,000 ft above sea level. Sunday was more of a down day - the skiers caught some turns above Polar Star Mine, and many snowshoers explored New York Mountain 1000 feet above the hut. As always, the food was excellent (and plentiful), the company terrific, and the entertainment quite amusing!
