The Hut:

Battle Abbey hut is a 20-minute helicopter flight west of Golden and is located at 7200 feet (2200 m) at the toe of Omoo Glacier. A windmill and a solar panel generate the hut’s electricity and a wood stove provides heat. There is running water and hot showers, as well as indoor toilets that can be used during the night. This well-appointed hut is uniquely designed and houses much history as it was used frequently by some of the first explorers in the late seventies.

Skiing:

The skiing is mostly above tree line on glaciers, however there is also good tree skiing. The terrain is quite complex with a mixture of mellow to quite steep slopes. Runs are generally 1000 to 1600 ft (300m to 500m) in length.
