By Ryan Wichelns, Special to The Denver Post When it comes to hut trips in Colorado, wintertime gets all the love, and for good reason: Coming back to a warm hut and a comfortable place to sleep after a day of skiing definitely beats crawling into a cold tent. But come summertime, the Rockies are still littered with huts as well-placed, accessible, warm and comfortable as they are in the winter, perfect for use as a basecamp to explore the mountains. Even better?
