Educational Programs

The Grand Huts Association offers year round environmental programs for backcountry visitors of all ages. These programs foster appreciation for the rich diversity and natural heritage associated with sub-alpine ecosystems, promote low-impact backcountry recreation, and encourage awareness into inherent dangers associated with backcountry use. GHA  works with the Colorado Mountain School providing Avalanche Education courses.

Custom Classes and Workshops

Custom classes and workshops can be developed to meet your needs. Teachers can use the huts as a backcountry classroom. As the Broome Hut exists in a heavily used basin for recreational uses and water diversion to the front range, it is a great tool to learn about the environment and the impact humans have on it. From biology to social studies, to green building practices and sustainability, there is great potential for using huts as a hands-on learning tool.

Contact us at 970-726-8096 or email to explore the many options available. Or rent the hut to present your own backcountry workshop. (Guide and special use restrictions may apply.)

Ecological Follow-Ups

This session is designed for those who have already participated in one of our other programs. Ecological progress/stress is examined and recorded and determined if any action is needed. GHA will continue to monitor the environment to ensure impacts are minimalized. This is also planned to be a part of the high school science program.
