24km Shelter / Changeroom
As part of our 2022-23 grant funding with the BCSF, MSC had the opportunity to acquire, modify, transport, and set up the incredible “Big Blue” warm-up Shelter at the 24 km prospect junction. This new shelter marks a significant upgrade from our previous unit, providing our members with enhanced comfort and protection. In the fall of 2023, our dedicated members successfully raised the shelter onto blocks, ensuring it remains above the snowy terrain for the upcoming season. Join us at the 24km Shelter / Changeroom and experience the benefits of this remarkable addition firsthand. Together, let’s make unforgettable memories on the sled trails!
Nestled in the valley just east of Mt Hewitt Bostock, the Honeymoon shelter isn’t your run-of-the-mill cabin. It’s a slice of living history nestled in the rugged British Columbia backcountry. Erected in ’99, it stands as a testament to the determination of local enthusiasts who hauled tools and equipment via helicopters and horseback to construct this sanctuary. Names like Tracy Senio, Dennis Rogalski, and Royce Alexander have left their indelible marks, their legacy serving as an inspiration for modern-day adventurers to saddle up and create their own tales.
Located in the very back end of the Honeymoon area this hidden gem is hard to get to in the best of condtions.
