There’s something magical and wonderful about backcountry huts. And that’s why we’ve devoted our February issue to them. Most simply, huts, lodges and yurts serve as shelter from a winter’s night. But what they offer goes so much deeper. Whether you’re planning your first hut trip or are a seasoned backcountry tripper, you’ll connect with the essays and how-to tips in this issue. Also inside, Sugarloaf, Maine goes really big, splitboard guide Liz Daley breaks ground, and we review our favorite microbrews.
