Hut Booking Policies - Summer 2022

We encourage all of our hut guests to purchase or renew their ACC membership prior to reserving their hut stay, this will save both of us some time!

We continue to monitor, and ask all of our hut users to abide by, all provincial health regulations. We do this in support of our government agencies, our health care system, local businesses and the collective health of our community.

We thank you for doing your part.

Hut Booking Schedule - Summer 2022

For summer 2022, some ACC backcountry huts are booked as dormitory-style accommodation (per-bed, per-night). Other huts are booked as exclusive bookings (whole hut booking). Other huts are booked in a hybrid model, with some dates booked exclusive and other dates booked dormitory style.

Exclusive rates are based on booking the entire facility not by the number of users. Dorm style rates are based on numbers of users.

Reservations at all huts (for members and non-members) opens on a staggered schedule as follows:

  • Stay dates May 1 to June 16: reservations open March 10
  • Stay dates up to July 17: reservations open March 17
  • Stay dates up to August 16: reservations open March 28
  • Stay dates up to September 15: reservations open April 11
  • Stay dates up to October 30: reservations open April 22

Bookings are taken, on first come first basis starting 9:00 am MST of the booking period using the following link:

Covid and your Group

Orders and Provincial guidelines for gatherings may change between the time of booking and scheduled arrival date. All facility users must meet the current guidelines and restrictions for gatherings during their stay, even if those numbers are less than facility capacities.

All guests with bookings at ACC huts are encouraged to read the latest provincial health regulations:


If anyone in your party experiences any COVID-like symptoms during your stay (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath), you must immediately vacate the facility and travel directly to your place of origin to follow up with your local health authority for possible testing for COVID-19. You are required to immediately contact the ACC to inform us of your situation. Any associated costs are not the responsibility of the ACC.

Payments, Changes and Cancellations - Summer 2022

The ACC highly recommends trip cancellation and trip interruption insurance to those booking our facilities. In the event that you are forced to cancel your booking due to an emergency, or COVID, or trail closures, etc, this would likely cover you for the cost of non-refundable reservation fees or the non-refundable full and final payment on facility bookings, as well as any accompanying travel arrangements.

At time of booking, a non-refundable reservation fee equal to the amount of the first night’s rate will be collected.

  • The reservation fee covers the costs associated with registration and the preparations necessary for the intended stay. These costs are incurred whether the trip is utilized or not, for whatever reason. As such, once these funds are received, these services are deemed to have been rendered and that portion of the service agreement concluded. The reservation fee is not a deposit. It is a cost of business rendered on behalf of the guests and is not refundable in any event.
  • A valid facility credit may be applied as a non-refundable reservation fee along with credit card information for the remaining balance (should the facility credit not cover the entire balance)

Non-refundable remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the first night’s stay and will automatically be charged to a valid facility credit and/or the credit card on file.

Bookings less than 30 days prior to the first night’s stay will collect the non-refundable booking fee and the non-refundable remaining balance at the time of booking.


  • Dates are non-transferrable. Changes to any bookings are treated the same as a cancellation and follow the same terms and conditions.
  • Cancellations must be received in writing. All payment(s) are 100% non-refundable and final.
  • Cancellations made more than 30 days prior to first night’s stay forfeit the non-refundable reservation fee.
  • Cancellations less than 30 days prior to the first night’s stay forfeit the non-refundable reservation fee and the non-refundable remaining balance.
  • The same policies apply to the use of facility credits. Payment by facility credit is 100% non-refundable and final.
  • Credits and/or deferrals will not be considered for any cancellation for any reason whatsoever.
  • The ACC does not refund or discount any booking(s) due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons beyond our control.
  • The ACC reserves the right to cancel any bookings at our discretion.
