About the Spearhead Huts Project
The Spearhead Huts Society is a federally registered charitable organization created to developed and operate a world-class backcountry hut system on the Spearhead Range in Garibaldi Provincial Park. The hut system will improve safety for the backcountry travellers, minimize environmental impact, provide local economic benefits and create a lasting tribute for skiers who have lost their lives in the mountains.
The Spearhead Huts Society is comprised of representatives from the Kees and Claire Memorial Hut Society, Alpine Club of Canada – Whistler Section, Alpine Club of Canada – Vancouver Section and the BC Mountaineering Club. The Brett Carlson Memorial Foundation also played an integral role in the original Spearhead Huts Committee that evolved into the formal Spearhead Huts Society.
The Committee continues to contribute to the project by way of a dedicated group of volunteers from the local mountain community who contribute to planning, fundraising, and communication.
