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. Info on guidelines and chores, as well as obtaining the key, can be found here.
We offer an honor system—please honor our offer. Pay to stay. If you use the cabin frequently and want to save yourself some money and the hassle of making numerous separate payments , consider buying an annual pass here.
Bunks are allocated on a “first come, first served” basis, and there’s no formal reservations system. We do however provide a calendar where you can enter the date(s) of your stay and see when others are visiting, to serve as an informal planning tool. Visit the resi calendar.
