Grand Opening Celebration for Kees And Claire Hut – Sept 21, 2019

It’s finished! The Kees and Claire Hut is finally opening thanks to the continued support from you and all our other supporters.

The grand opening of the first hut marks a huge milestone in the Spearhead Huts Project.

We are inviting you to come celebrate this achievement with us.


We are hosting two separate events on September 21st:

  1. Official Ribbon Cutting – up at the hut
  2. Celebration Event – back down in Whistler Village

Please join us for either or both. Here are the details…

To attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, we invite you to hike up with some of us on the morning of September 21st.

*7:30am Morning Coffee + Greeting
Meet us at The Handlebar in the Upper Village. *Please note, Guest Relations won’t be open at time of upload, so to board the gondola you will need to have already purchased your site-seeing pass the day before.

8:00am Upload from Blackcomb Gondola
We’ll head up Blackcomb, across the Peak to Peak, then hike the Musical Bumps Trail to the Hut (allow for 3-4 hours for the hike each direction).

1:00pm Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Blessing and Dedication for the Kees + Claire Hut Opening

Come join us! Unlike the ceremony up at the hut, this celebration is easy access with capacity for everyone. We’d love to see the whole Sea to Sky backcountry community come out to celebrate.

We are also fundraising for the water system and solar panels, so rally a big group and come support the project!

Film Premiere of Arc’teryx film ‘The Spearhead’ // Silent Auction // DJ Foxy Moron (Ace Mackay-Smith) // Drinks // Dedication

Time: 7:00-11:00pm, Saturday September 21st
