About GHA

Mission Statement

The Grand Huts Association is a non-profit organization working to enhance backcountry recreational cabin facilities in the forests of Grand County. Grand Huts Association will work to open to public use cabins already in existence on public and private lands and to build new structures where appropriate to assist in managing intense use of fragile ecosystems.

In 2006 a group of local Fraser Valley back-country enthusiasts recognized the importance of the condemned Second Creek Cabin and formed Grand Huts Association, a 501(c)(3)  tax exempt, nonprofit organization to support the development of back-country huts in Grand County, Colorado. Our diverse Board of Directors and the advisors include long time Grand County residents as well as newcomers, local business owners,  professionals, skiers, snowshoers and hikers.

GHA has received great community support. In addition to individual cash contributions and in-kind donations from local businesses, we have received financial support from the towns of Winter Park, Fraser, and Granby, the Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District, Fraser Valley Partnership for Trails, the Grand County Board of County Commissioners, the Jack Forte Foundation, the Grand Foundation, Sage Peak Associates and others.

Over 4,000 hours of volunteer time went in to building the Broome Hut. Volunteers are the life blood of the organization.

We are grateful for all the support we have received.
