Job Type


Perched at 11,700ft, the OPUS Hut is an eco-friendly, off-the-grid, bed-and-breakfast style backcountry lodge. In winter, OPUS is accessed via a 3.5 mile ski and in summer, it’s a ¼ mile hike. Our mission is to foster a non-motorized mountain recreation culture and reconnect guests to the natural world. Guests visit to ski tour, hike and enjoy breathtaking vistas. We provide lodging, meals, and information about the surrounding area in a comfortable, low-impact setting.

• Guest communications (email, phone and in-person)
• Preparing meals for groups of up to 20 guests
