It depends on what part of the state you are looking at going. Fowlard Hillard, Estin, and Janet's Cabin all have pretty good ski terrain around them. For more info you can visit: http://www.huts.org to read descriptions on all of cabins and the routes to get to them.

Have fun,

most of the huts have all the terrain a beginner or advanced skier could want. having been to a number of the huts I'd have to say my favorite for terrain is the green-wilson hut, it's close to me, pretty easy to get to and has some great terrain for safe skiing as well as montezuma basin for some big and steep lines!

The Eiseman hut has some nice trees and some steeper stuff the further you go out too. The snow is notoriously deep too. From January 4th: Image
