The Jim Haberl Hut is an alpine hut located in the Tantalus Range near Squamish, British Columbia. The hut is maintained by the Alpine Club of Canada - Vancouver Section.

The hut sleeps 12, and is equipped with mattresses, cooking utensils, propane cooktops, and a propane heater. It was named for mountain guide, author and photojournalist Jim Haberl, who was killed in an avalanche while mountaineering in Alaska on April 29, 1999.[1] The hut was built with the generous assistance of Alpine Club of Canada volunteers, the Jim Haberl Fund,[2] and the Department of National Defense, 192 Airfield Engineering Flight in Abbotsford, BC.

The hut is located in the Serratus-Dione col, about a 6-hour hike above Lake Lovely Water and the Tantalus Hut or a full 14 hours (usually done over two days) from the Squamish River. The site is located on the edge of Tantalus Provincial Park.
