Jim Haberl hut

The Jim Haberl hut is an alpine hut located in Tantalus Range near Squamish, British Columbia. The hut is maintained by the Alpine Club of Canada. Coordinates: 49°47.9' 123°18.6' (49°47' 57"-123°18' 35")

The hut sleeps 12, and is equipped with propane powered lamps, stovetop and oven. It was named for mountain guide and photojournalist Jim Haberl, who was killed in an avalanche while mountaineering in Alaska on April 29, 1999[1], and was built with the assistance of the Jim Haberl Fund[2]

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.
