The Harvard Mountaineering Club Cabin is open December 1 to April 1.
Cost is $15/person/night to stay inside, with max occupancy of 16. Campsites accommodating up to 20 people are available nearby for $10/person/night, and campers may NOT use cabin facilities.
In lieu of reservations, visitors are encouraged to sign up in the Pinkham Notch pack room and to see how many people have headed up already.
The cabin is located below Huntington Ravine, and is frequently used by ice climbers as a base camp. It is heated with a woodstove (4-9pm), and has permanent propane cooking stoves. A caretaker is present, although he or she is often out during the day. Water from a stream nearby is not treated so use iodine or filter if you desire. The caretaker has a radio to make emergency calls and the weather forecast and avalanche conditions are posted by 8 in the morning.
Further info: If you are interested in hearing about maintenance projects, caretaker hiring, and other cabin-related information on a less than monthly basis, sign up here. Cabin users, AMC folks, former caretakers, and any other interested parties are welcome. For cabin-related inquiries, please get in touch with this year's HMC Cabin Liaison, Dan Bradley (email@example.com).
