The Spearhead Huts Society is thrilled to announce the Kees and Claire Hut reservation software is now live for bookings. Final construction is ongoing throughout the summer and the hut is on track to open to the public on September 7th, 2019. The completion of the Kees and Claire Hut represents the realization of the first of three modern huts that link the iconic 40km Spearhead Traverse.
“The completion of this first hut is a huge accomplishment for our incredibly generous donors and volunteers,” said Jayson Faulkner, the Society’s President. “We look forward to seeing the public explore some of the most picturesque and dramatic terrain in the mountains around Whistler.”
The Kees and Claire Hut accommodates up to 38 people with a fully outfitted self-serve kitchen and large windows with wrap around views of the stunning Spearhead range. Guests can cook their own meals in Barbara’s Kitchen, relax in the Brett Carlson Lounge or watch the sunset from Roy’s Deck after a full day in the mountains. Bunk rooms comfortably sleep 4 to 8 people. Families and children can enjoy the Mischa Arnott Alpine Youth Room.
The reservation software will go live on June 24th, 2019. Hut fees are: $45 per night to the general public, discounts will be available for members of the Alpine Club of Canada and the British Columbia Mountaineering Club.

As construction winds down on the Kees and Claire Hut, plans have already begun for the second hut, at Mt. Macbeth, thanks to a large donation from Andrea and Brian Hill. Construction is expected to begin summer 2020.
