The Kees and Claire Hut

The Kees and Claire Hut is a state-of-the-art, energy-efficient backcountry hut.  The hut has 38 sleeping spaces divided into 6 sleeping areas.

It is heated, so all you’ll need is a light sleeping bag (and mattress, for the time being - the hut hopes to provide mattresses in the not too distant future). The hut is fully equipped with propane stoves, cookies equipment, pots, plates, utensils, etc. Only food needs to be carried in. The hut has indoor composting toilets for your comfort and to minimize environmental impact. The hut has electricity and lights.
