Hut Lotteries

The Bill Putnam (Fairy Meadow) Hut and Kokanee Glacier Cabin in winter are helicopter-access, self-catering backcountry skiing huts. For details on the huts and their facilities, as well as the terrain, please see the Fairy Meadow Hut page or the Kokanee Glacier Cabin page.

The Elizabeth Parker Hut in summertime is one of the most popular huts in the ACC network, and with good reason. The hut is beautiful and the Lake O’Hara area with its outstanding hiking and stunning scenery is famous around the world. Because of the popularity of the hut, reservations are made via a lottery system, and here is how the lottery works.
