We haven’t hit this hut yet, so in the meantime here is a description from the Columbia Valley Hut Society…
This hut, constructed in September of 1997, replaced a small 30 year old structure that had seen its better days and was too small to meet the demands of an ever-growing interest of hikers and skiers to see the beautiful vistas of Jumbo Pass. The new 8 person cabin was a joint project involving the Columbia Valley Hut Society and a Forest Renewal B.C. grant. It sits on the ridge along the Purcell divide, about .5 km north of Jumbo Pass. There is quality hiking, scrambling and ski touring available in this small alpine location. Views are superb and include Karnak and Jumbo Mountains to the north-east and Cauldron/Horseshoe glaciers to the south-west. A nearby tarn, just to the east of the cabin, is the summer season drinking water source.
Please use firewood sparingly as it is expensive to fly in! Firewood is for winter use only – not summertime campfires.
