Where do I even begin? Let's just say my first backcountry hut experience was nothing short of awesome! We stayed at Janet's Cabin (Summit Huts Association) this past weekend for my birthday celebration and we were delighted. The cabin itself was beautiful and really had everything you needed. We met some really cool people who knew how everything worked and helped out with chores tremendously! If every hut experience is like this we will keep coming back again and again. Highly recommended!
