Opening Season: ACC's Maintenance Team
Editor's Note - Warm evening fires, cozy beds and convenient washrooms - a few of the creature comforts we've come to enjoy when staying at ACC backcountry huts. Many may not know, but these comforts are a result of the hard work from our maintenance team, the hidden backbone of our huts and the ACC.
The following photos essay represents a snippet of the type of work our team does, but we hope you get the jist of it!
Two quick notes from our maintenance team:
Wood needs to be flown in - while we want you to thoroughly enjoy your stay, we'd like you to be mindful of the cost that each log actually represents after fuel costs for the helicopter.
- Don't burn plastics or trash in the wood stoves - throwing anything other than wood in the stoves will clog up the chimneys with toxic junk. Bad for your lungs and especially bad on our chimney sweeper!
Help support efforts to maintain our huts today!
ACC huts are used as bases for mountain recreation and as emergency refuges for all mountain travellers. They are an enduring symbol of the ACC and an enormous part of our club’s past, present and future. Operating and maintaining this hut system is a large undertaking physically, logistically and financially.
Your contribution to the Facilities Fund will help build new, and facilitate renovations and upkeep, to ACC huts across the country.
