Janet’s Cabin

Situated at 11,610 feet, Janet’s Cabin sits at the head of Guller Creek about halfway between Copper Mountain and Vail Pass. Built in 1990, the three-story cabin honors Janet Boyd Tyler, who was an avid skier and who died of cancer on St. Patrick’s Day, 1988.

Janet’s Cabin was the first cabin built in the Summit Huts Association (SHA) and sits adjacent the Colorado Trail. SHA was founded in 1987 as a nonprofit organization and is dedicated to developing a system of backcountry cabins linking Copper Mountain, Frisco, Breckenridge and Keystone and will tie into the 10th Mountain Division Hut Association system.

SHA operates Janet’s Cabin, Francie’s Cabin, Ken’s Cabin and the Section House. For more information on SHA or to book a cabin, call (970) 453-8583, or look it up online at http://www.huts.org.
