Steilhang Hut (NEW for 2021-22!)

Steilhang Hut (NEW for 2021-22!)

Location: Upper Mountain Hut

Located at the top of the Lenawee Parks frontside terrain with stunning views of the East Wall and Continental Divide, Steilhang Hut is Arapahoe Basin's newest on-mountain restaurant. 

Steilhang is a German-style alpine hut that sits above treeline serving Colorado-made specialty sausages, Colorado-brewed German draft beer, and soft pretzels and strudel made by Denver bakeries. This will be a place to grab a quick, tasty meal and a cold beverage while you rest your legs for another trip into Montezuma Bowl or another lap of the East Wall terrain.

The building features a wraparound deck, composting toilets, reclaimed materials, and solar power. 

Guests must be able to ski or ride at least a blue / intermediate run to get down from the restaurant. There is no foot-passenger lift service. 

Steilhang will serve as a warming hut outside of operating hours. Once open, uphill traffic is welcome to use the bathroom and rest on their journey to the summit. 

Summer Season Hours

Beginning summer 2022, Steilhang will serve as an operating base for the via ferrata. Enjoy a cold draft beer after your climbing adventure!

Ski Season Hours

Steilhang will open during the winter 21-22 season. Date is TBD.
