We haven’t hit this hut yet, so here is the description from the Columbia Valley Hut Society…
The Dave White Memorial Cabin was built by the Columbia Valley Hut Society in the fall of 2001. Dave White was an avid outdoor recreationalist who lost his life in the winter of 2001 across the ridge above this hut. The society agreed unanimously that this cabin should be named in his honour.
The cabin sits on a rocky knoll surrounded by dense mature timber about 50 meters above Forster Creek meadow. Its location and design were chosen to take full advantage of the sunlight and of the panoramic view of Catamount Glacier. There are many options to choose from for great day skiing from the hut. Skiers with advanced backcountry skills will find the terrain above the cabin complex, steep and potentially dangerous. Those who lack the appropriate skills are strongly advised to find terrain suitable to their level of expertise.
The Forster Creek drainage is unique in that it is one of the few areas where numerous user groups share the natural resources. The CVHS, the Windermere Valley Snowmobile Society, the village of Radium Hot Springs and R.K. Heliskiing all have an interest here. Expect to share your backcountry experience with others when visiting this drainage.
