AAC Members can enjoy the same discounted access to the Canadian Hut System as "Hut Upgrade" members of the Alpine Club of Canada do!

As a membership benefit, AAC members have the option to purchase the Canadian "Hut Upgrade" for only $24 USD. This upgrade gets you the same discounts enjoyed by Alpine Club of Canada members (who have purchased the same stamp) at their Canmore Clubhouse (including the self-contained Boswell Cabin) and at their national back country huts. The Canadian hut system consists of over 20 of the most climbing and backcountry skiing friendly locations in North America.

These backcountry huts range from remote bivi shelters at the base of distant mountains to log cabins with casual approaches in the Rocky and Selkirk Mountains of Alberta and British Columbia. All of these facilities offer rustic hospitality in Canada's most popular mountain environments. Find solace in a storm, respite after a long day's hike, or simply a quiet mountain refuge for a few days of solitude. Whatever your reason for visiting an Alpine Club of Canada hut, we're sure that you'll enjoy your stay.
