Spearhead Hut Volunteer week

Spearhead Hut Volunteer week
July 21, 2018 Nathalie Drotar

Hello everyone! 

The Vancouver Section is going to be busy this summer building their latest backcountry hut – the Kees and Claire Hut (one of the Spearhead Huts) near Whistler. We’re hoping to get a small group of volunteers together to head over there towards the end of the season to help with installation of furniture, fittings, accessories, signage. I’ve registered an ACC Calgary group, Group 33 for 4 days September 17 to 21 on the volunteer site: LINK HERE

There’s lots of great info on there about what to expect on site, the location, and how to get to the site (a 3-4 hour hike from the Whistler-Blackcomb gondola; gondola tickets are free for volunteers). Travel to/from Whistler will be our own – we can carpool, take the bus overnight, or fly if interested in maximizing time. Those details can be discussed closer to the date. Food is provided at the site, as is tent lodging.

Read through the Volunteer Orientation Package for more details: HERE

For those who register, please contact Kristine O’Rielly (k_orielly@hotmail.com) to discuss your experience with carpentry and other labour (which you don’t necessarily need, it’s just nice to know everyone’s background). Those who can commit will be asked to register themselves on the Spearhead site under our group (Group 33). Feel free to reach out if you have questions.
