Perched on a narrow, rocky shoulder of Mt. Little Alberta, this small hut is surrounded by some of the most spectacularly rugged terrain in all of the Rockies.
It is similar in design to the Castle Mountain hut and offers a comfortable shelter for climbers en route to Mt. Alberta or as a base for other objectives in the area. As a result of the 75th Anniversary celebrations of the first ascent of Mount Alberta, the hut and outhouse received a complete makeover. A composting outhouse was installed thanks to the joint fundraising efforts of the Japanese Alpine Club and the Alpine Club of Canada. The hut interior was completely renovated and is now a very comfortable place to relax, prepare dinner, wait out a storm, or plan your ventures onto the surrounding peaks.
Coleman stoves and lanterns as well as an adequately stocked cooking area make up the amenities at the hut. Sleeping capacity is 6. People should come prepared for the possibility of bad weather in this area since options for exploring would be limited in the event of whiteout or storm.
Its location is second to none and is normally reached in a fairly long day from the Icefield Parkway via Woolley Creek and Woolley Shoulder; a strenuous hike with full packs. A few adventurous souls have paid winter visits to this hut and have reported excellent skiing on the slopes in the area.
