2021 Update

The Cabin is open with new access procedures, please view the Cabin Rules & Information page for updates on cabin policy.

The cabin was built in 1936, and is owned and maintained by The O.H.A. (short for The Old Hutcroo Association), an organization run by former employees of the AMC Hut System. The OHA isn’t supported by the AMC and depends entirely upon the volunteer and financial support of its membership.

The cabin was constructed as a place for current and former croo to relax and enjoy the mountains and each other's company. Your membership dues and cabin fees pay for firewood, taxes, utilities, insurance, repairs, and everything else that goes into keeping the place running, looking good, and available to dues paying members and their friends.

For most people who worked in a hut, that experience taught us a mountain of valuable first lessons, like how to handle people, how to make good decisions, and how to manage and maintain a building entrusted to us. This cabin deserves the same respect and care. Treat it kindly, keep it clean, and leave it a little better than you found it.

We’ve successfully operated the Cabin on a self-service basis for over 80 years, because users have followed some simple, basic guidelines and pitched in with “must-do” chores. Please continue that tradition and do your part. This is your home-away-from-home, so please treat it accordingly.
