Skiing

Avalanche serious.gif Avalanche Hazard
The route and terrain described here is capable of producing avalanches. Safe travel requires the skills and equipment to assess and mitigate avalanche hazards. A professionally taught training course is highly recommended.

The area includes many good skiing bowls. There are some gentle slopes near the hut which makes it a good area for beginners.

Access

The hut is just over 5km from the road and usually takes 2-3 hours to reach in summer or winter.

Whistler's ACC section has details about access to the hut, including a complete GPS track.
