  • Well known for the summer mountaineering terrain nearby, the hut can also be used as a ski touring objective from the Fairy Meadow Hut or as a base for ski touring in the Sir Sandford area itself.

    The ACC describes…

    “Situated on a bench with a “front row seat” for the many moods of Mt. Sir Sandford, and built from stones from the area, the Great Cairn Hut is one of the most picturesque huts the ACC operates, as well as one of the most spectacularly positioned.

    The hut sleeps six people quite comfortably, has a mouse-proof wooden food locker and a small table with four stools. There is a small wood burning stove for heat, but firewood is not supplied.

    From its location on a red bedrock bench, 4 km NNW of Mt. Sir Sandford in the heart of the Northern Selkirk Mountains of B.C. Access to the hut is via either of two long overland routes involving extensive glacier travel or via helicopter from Golden, B.C.”
