Asulkan Cabin is located in Rogers' Pass area of Glacier National Park, BC.

Terrific base for summer mountaineering and backcountry skiing. Access is a 3-5 hour hike or ski. Class A, sleeps 12.

The Asulkan Cabin at Rogers Pass is owned and maintained by Parks Canada. The Alpine Club of Canada takes reservations for the cabin.

The cabin is located at the head of the Asulkan Valley, and has about a 3-5 hour approach, longer if there is new snow.

The hut is a beautiful panabode style building which sleeps 12. Cooking stove (no oven), lighting and heat are supplied by propane. The hut is stocked with cooking and eating utensils and sleeping pads.

The Asulkan Cabin is well situated for skiing in the Asulkan Valley. The Seven Steps of Paradise, Asulkan Pass, Sapphire Col and the Dome Glacier can be reached as day trips from the hut. See also the

Downside Pretty difficult to travel during spring. Creek thaws out and uncovered, so no sking, and the snow is avalanche prone (more than usual). Requires some skill to ascend to in the winter. Comment Awesome trip. Made it to the bowl at the bottom (commonly refered to as the moustrap) before we turned around and went back down the othe wheeler hut. Great trip! Note, we bootpacked in, and there is a fair bit of snow left in the valley and it is very unstable. So watch yourself if you go early like we did.
