Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate Francie's Cabin's 20th Anniversary at Carter Park on July 27! 

We had a very successful event celebrating a very successful cabin! Francie's Cabin is one of the most popular huts in the state of Colorado. Since opening in 1995, Francie's Cabin has been visited by over 60,000 guests.

Summit Huts is excited that one of the major projects for this fall will be a window upgrade at Francie's that should be completed in time for the winter opening, but the weather is going to need to cooperate!

A BIG thank you to Upslope Brewing Company and Whole Foods Market for their sponsorships the event.
