The following booking policies are in place for Fall/Winter 2020/21 bookings.
Requests for bookings are made online only and will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Please do not call the office to request a hut booking.
Only entire huts can be booked. All family or group members must accept the collective risk of being with each other. This decision is based on guidance from BC Health Services.
At the time of booking confirmation, all reservation invoices must be paid in full.
If a cancellation is made, a credit will be issued and will be valid for 24 months. The credit amount will be equal to all payments made on your invoice.
We will require the names of all individuals staying with you for the duration of your booking.
Scheduled 24 hour transition periods between bookings
The hut will not be disinfected by the ACC between bookings. For your own safety, it is strongly advised to do your own disinfecting of surfaces on arrival.
We ask groups to sanitize upon leaving as part of their agreement to hut use. Information is needed on how to disinfect. This will be added to the Hut manual.
People are asked to bring their own tea towels, washcloths, etc when they come and are to take out all garbage upon departure. The general policy of the mountains is “leave nothing behind”.
A custodian may or may not be at the hut when you are there. If so, they will keep 6 foot distance from your group
Bleach, hand sanitizer, and other cleaning supplies will be available at the hut.
ENTIRE HUT BOOKINGS
All hut bookings will be for the entire hut (exclusive booking). There will be one point of contact for the booking and all members of the group accept the collective risk of travelling together and staying in the hut. Rates are per night for the entire hut.
BOOKING REQUESTS WINDOW
Bookings can be made on Sept 11th and thereafter booking requests available up to 90 days ahead of time. ACCVI members can book 90 days ahead of time and all others can book one month ahead of time.

If anyone in your party experiences any COVID-like symptoms during your stay (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath), you must immediately vacate the facility and travel directly to your place of origin to follow up with your local health authority for possible testing for COVID-19.
