ABOUT Climax Revival

Become Closer to Nature

Climax Revival is a locally owned and operated, private recreational paradise in the Rocky Mountains of Leadville, Colorado. Near the former mining town of Climax and the lost Climax Ski Area on Chalk Mountain, Climax Revival reimagines “Life at the Top,” providing a venue for winter and summer adventures, experiences and events in a unique backcountry setting. Located 10 miles north of Leadville, the property sits at an elevation of over 11,000 feet.


Looking to the Future

Climax Revival envisions bringing back recreational experiences to Chalk Mountain, one of Colorado’s “lost ski areas,” reimagined for the 21st Century.

"We loved our stay at Carner’s Cabin! It’s such a beautiful spot — incredible hut setup and view. It is well stocked and communicating with David was super smooth. We will definitely book again!"

Avery 5 Star Review

"This cabin was perfect, and even better than the pictures show. We went up for a back country skiing bachelor party and the cabin was in a great spot to hike in and out of and was incredibly stocked with kitchen items, games, books, and a bunch of random things just in case. We hope to come back!"

Ben 5 Star Review

"This cabin has literally everything you need to be comfortable. From french press, to solar chargers to a grill and compost indoor toilet. This was our second visit and we can't recommend it enough!"

Jessica 5 Star Review

"AWESOME cabin. 7 guys on a getaway trip early in November. Just enough snow to make it too tricky to get up in a truck (we made it about half way). The snowshoe hike in was beautiful. The cabin was clean, warm, and totally perfect. David was also super easy to communicate with and made it a fantastic trip."

Jared 5 Star Review

"Always our favorite trip of the winter season. We have been coming up for 6 straight years. There is an abundance of ski terrain around the cabin and beautiful views. David is a great host."

Kelly 5 Star Review

"We’ve stayed here twice and always had an amazing experience! A great cabin that’s off the grid and built in a spectacular location."

Hannah 5 Star Review

"We've been going to David's hut for years now - definitely a favorite weekend of the year for those looking for an off-the-grid hut experience! Highly recommend the sherpa service as well!!"
