Lily Lake Loop is an easy backcountry ski trail that leads to one of the 10th Mountain Division Hut, of the Hut-to-Hut system near Leadville, CO.  The hut honors the soldiers who trained at nearby Camp Hale, and saw service in the mountains of Italy during World War 2.  The 10th Mountain Division Hut Association was founded in 1980, and today operates 31 huts, linked by over 300 mi.s of USFS trails.  Since the trail is at elevation 10,000', you won't have to worry about lack of snow late in the season.
