Lindley backcountry ski hut.
The Lindley hut was first constructed in 1953 (it later burned down and was rebuilt) as a memorial to Alfred Lindley, a prominent lawyer and sportsman from Minnesota. Lindley was a principal of the National Ski Association (forerunner of the United States Ski Association), and died in a plane crash in 1950. He was an enthusiastic promoter of alpine ski touring and mountaineering. The hut was fully renovated in 2002.
Lindley is one of the "kid friendly" huts in the system and is part of the Braun & Friends Hut system which are located in areas of known avalanche terrain with recurring avalanche cycles. Routes are not marked or maintained.
