The Snowspider Hut is a tiny but really nice (and romantic) looking hut next to Snowspider Mountain (who would have guesses that..), and south-east of Mount Matier.
The route of choice starts at Cerise Creek parking lot next to the Duffey Lake road, which goes along Cerise Creek up to Flavelle/Cerise Hut. From there on it goes through the col between Vantage Peak and the east side of Mount Matier, through the little valley with a lake and up on the other side to Snowspider Hut. The route is about 10 - 12 km withsome elevation gain, but am still searching for more accurate numbers ;).
You should have skied before with a bigger backpack, have AST-1 and be rather self sufficient with overnight ski trips. However, depending on how many experienced people we'll have, you might also join the group even though you're rather newish to such trips. Just sign up and we will see what happens :)
Of course we will have to check weather and avalanche forecast (should be moderate or low).
This is the hut:
It's tiny, apparently only 4 sleeping spots, but we might squeeze in a few more. But we will bring tents just to make sure everyone has a roof/tent over the head.
