End the Old and Start the New Year with a few days in a spectacular setting at an awesome Hut with some good food and in great company

Plan is to spend a few ( up to 4) Days & (as many as 3) Nights around New Years @ Haberl Hut.....
Heli In ...Heli Out....
Some skiing, and / or some snowshoeing.....maybe climbing (Serratus anyone?)
but for sure some kickin' back & celebrating the New Year....bring your party hats & fireworks

We'll each bring in some good food do some cookin' & enjoy the huts' unique extreme alpine ambiance.....

Flying Weather in the area at that time of year is notoriously unpredictable

If our dates appear tentative .....
Its because flying conditions may not be exactly as planned or hoped for....

That applies to both the timing of the flight in and out.

Which means duration of our stay @ Hut will be subject to vagaries of the weather.

If you are at all interested in the trip contact Rob (information below) & we'll see what we need to do to make this trip happen.
