For Skiers Only

While some of the massive spectacular ski houses make me wonder if anyone actually skis there, here's a refreshing reality check...this ski house is for skiers only.  Really...there is no road access in winter.  Not only is this a "ski-in-ski-out" house, you must ski-in in order to get there!  And that is its unique appeal.

The Ski House of the Day, is Mountain Belle, a simple, basic but unique cabin tucked into the remote mountains between Silverton and Ouray, Colorado...(just getting to that area is an adventure in itself!).  You can stay in it this winter, if you can ski to it, according to Ski  Backcountry skiers won't be surprised to learn that this ski house offers no cleaning/services, no linens, no water, no phone, no cell service, no refrigerator, no services of any kind...all part of its appeal.  But to backcountry skiers, a ski house of any kind could be considered a luxury.  Everyone in this place must be a adventure-loving, skilled skier...the ski house of the day is truly one for skiers only!
