We're deep in the Purcell backcountry and relatively easy to get to. Guests meet at Kimberley Alpine Resort and are flown in by Astar 350 helicopter to Boulder Hut.
Please plan your travel itinerary giving yourself a buffer (a day on each end) to accommodate delays due to stormy weather. These could include your incoming flight not arriving on time or a weather delay in helicopter transport out from the hut. In the winter it snows here. A lot.
