Love downhill skiing, but hate the crowds most major resorts attract? Check out Ken’s Cabin in Colorado’s high country, situated near tons of backcountry skiing. Part of the Summit Huts Association, the one-room log cabin was first built in the 1860s, when the road that runs near it was just a wagon trail over the Continental Divide. It was restored and added to the National Register of Historic Places in the 1990s, and sleeps just two or three people. Located just a few miles away from Breckenridge, it's accessed via an easy snowshoe up an old railroad grade.
