Our winter base for ski touring, snowshoeing and backcountry instruction courses
Rex Simpson Hut is owned by Alpine Recreation and is an ideal base for trekking in the summer and snowshoeing and nordic and alpine ski touring in the winter. The hut can be heated and is a cosy place to retreat to after your day's adventure. Relax and enjoy your stay - Rex Simpson Hut is a fantastic location for some star gazing and the Mackenzie District is renowned for the clarity of its sky and freedom from light pollution, which is why the area was recently designated as an International Dark Sky Reserve.
