  • Here is wha the CVHS says about McMurdo Hut…

    The McMurdo hut is a hiking and ski touring paradise.  It’s location provides access to a vast amount of skiable terrain for seasoned winter backcountry users and high elevation hiking opportunities during summer months.

    This rustic Forest Service cabin is located near the top end of McMurdo Creek. Set in a small meadow surrounded by a spruce forest, it was built in the early 1900’s to accommodate miners working at the site nearby. Over the years minor renovations have been in keeping with the original style of the cabin and it has retained its quaint, rustic charm. For the experienced hiker and skier, cross-country excursions include the divide above International Basin and east of David Peak, the old mine site to the south, and high level crossovers to Silent Lake at Silent Pass. The pass is a scenic panorama of lake, glaciers and alpine meadows. With the building of the CVHS’s Kingsbury Hut, hikers and skiers now use McMurdo Hut as a jumping off point for travel to International Basin as well.
