Moonlight Grand Huts Progressive Dinner Saturday, Feb. 4
February 2, 2012
On Saturday night, Feb. 4, Grand Huts will host its annual fundraiser at Devil’s Thumb Ranch. There are still tickets available to purchase online, according to the Marilyn Anderson, Grand Hut’s volunteer organizer.
Diners ski or snowshoe on an illuminated trail to three outposts. The first stop features appetizers and wine. The second stop is a yurt where salad will be served. The final destination is the Broad Axe Barn room where dinner will be a buffet, with dinner selections from local restaurants. There will be a live and silent auction along with music at the event. Some auction items include vacations, a New Year’s rental at the Broome Hut, a snowcat tour with Powder Addiction, and art from local artists.
The cost for the event is $50 for adults, which includes wine and beer. $15 for children under 15.
The first tour starts at 5:30 p.m., and the second tour starts at 6:30 p.m.
Broome Hut Update:
The Broome Hut, originally called the Second Creek Hut in the Second Creek Basin on the west side of Berthoud Pass, is partially completed. The building has a foundation and the flooring is installed. Volunteers will work on the walls and roof in the spring, according Anderson. “We still need volunteers to complete the hut, and in exchange, they can use the hut once it is finished.” There have been over 4,000 volunteer hours since site work started on July 11, 2011, Anderson said. Volunteers can contact Anderson at 970-470-2398. Grand Huts Association is a Colorado nonprofit corporation organized with the long-term vision of linking the Grand County backcountry with a system of eco-friendly huts that can be used year-round for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking and other non-motorized outdoor pursuits.
