The Kees and Claire Hut at Russet Lake will be the first stop in a spectacular hut-to-hut traverse experience in Whistler’s backyard. With the alpine construction season is once again upon us and we need your support to bring this project to the finish line. 

Help us raise $180,000 to finish the Kees and Claire Hut at Russet Lake. Donations this month will be matched by our friends at the Alpine Club of Canada (up to $120,000). 

That means that a gift of $500 becomes $1,000 and a gift of $1,000 becomes $2,000! Want to have your name (or the name of a loved one) on a plaque on a bunk? Donate more than $2,500 and you’ll receive just that!

Please consider a charitable donation today!
