Today the Hut Croos are back for the 2011 summer season! Following this year’s renovations, Madison Spring Hut now offers more comfortable guest spaces, including bunks redesigned for easier access and improved gear storage. A new cathedral ceiling and larger windows in the dining room add lots of natural light and offer expansive views of the surrounding summits. Guests can also relax outside on the hut’s new stone patio. Upgrades to energy and mechanical systems include more environmentally advanced waterless toilets and more efficient solar photovoltaic panels for electric power, plus new solar thermal collectors to pre-heat water for cooking and washing dishes.
More photos of Madison will be posted next week, but in the meantime, here is a photo of the new Madison taken by AMC’s huts manager, Eric Pedersen.
