2012-13 Ski Weeks with availability
Due to their popularity, ski weeks at Bill Putnam (Fairy Meadow) Hut and Kokanee Glacier Cabin are awarded through a lottery system. For more info on the Lotteries visit: Bill Putnam (Fairy Meadow) Hut lottery and Kokanee Glacier Cabin lottery.
The lotteries for ski weeks at the Bill Putnam (Fairy Meadow) Hut and the Kokanee Glacier Cabin for winter 2013 are complete, but some space remains in spring 2013. In the winter months both huts are accessed by helicopter and the flights are included in the hut fee.

Fairy Meadow Hut sleeps 20 and costs $925 per person for the week. Kokanee Glacier Cabin holds 12 in the winter and costs $875 per person for the week.

Shoulder season dates at Fairy Meadow & Kokanee
Dates outside of the lottery dates, before December 24 and after May 5 are available to book on a first come first serve basis. The cost of the hut is $30 - $41/person/night and does NOT include helicopter costs. These trips are not subject to the same blocks of time (ie. 6 nights/7days) and can be booked for as long/short a time that you would like to go, as long as the heli companies can work within the dates that you are proposing. Groups wishing to book these dates need to contact the ACC to see if the times are available and then contact the helicopter companies that service these areas to confirm that they can fly at these times, before the ACC will make an official booking.
