In the Duffy Lake are of BC an hour or so north of Whistler, conditions here are generally cooler and drier than at Whistler. Hut sleeps up to 16 and is heated by kerosene heaters. Surrounding Marriot basin provides wide range of skiing options. Ski into the hut is about four miles and 1900ft elevation gain. Current fees for hut usage are 12 per person per night (less for Alpine Club of Canada members)
This will be my third trip to the Wendy Thompson hut. Great skiing on north aspects in the Marriot basin and adjoining areas. We'll carpool from the Seattle area early in the morning and get to the trailhead around 1PM, The four miles into hut are well marked and getting there before dark should be easy. If there is sufficient interest, we could also leave Friday afternoon/evening and stay in a motel in Squamish, which would add to the cost but add an afternoon of turns. Once in the hut, each days skiing will depend on snow conditions, snow safety considerations and group interest. Cost of the hut is $12CAD per person per night $48 per person. As I have already paid the hut fee for the group, to reserve a spot on the roster please send me a check or PayPal payment. Refunds will mirror the ACC policy for the hut, no refunds if you drop out less than a week before (in this case after Jan 24th) unless the avalanche conditions as rated by Canadian Avalanche Centre on the days we are to be at the hut, are HIGH or EXTREME, as stated within 24 hours of your departure and we cancel the entire trip. Food arrangements, bring your own breakfasts and lunches. For dinners, Cook teams will be organized to plan, shop for, pack in, prepare and clean up each night’s dinner. Each carpool will be responsible for figuring out equitable cost sharing
