Two small huts are located in Sentinel Bay, about 500m back from Garibaldi lake. The huts are maintained for glaciology research, but are left open for visitors (at least in the winter). The smaller hut sleeps 2-3, the larger one sleeps 4-5, and neither has much room for cooking and living space. The nearby Burton Hut in Sphinx bay is more luxurious and is only a short ski away across the frozen lake.
