Backcountry Cabins

Not many years ago, the Bulkley Valley Cross Country Ski Club cared for two backcountry cabins:

  • Harold Price Cabin 27 km north of Smithers.  

BVCCSC is no longer responsible for maintaining the Harold Price cabin.  The local office of Recreation Sites and Trails BC is working with the Bulkley Valley Backpackers Society regarding future maintenance of the cabin. You can download cabin information as of 2010 but recognize that many details are out of date.

  • Starr Creek Cabin 30 km southwest of Smithers. 

Starr Creek Cabin has been closed since December 2012 due to risk to public safety associated with avalanche hazard. Notice of Closure from Recreation Sites and Trails BC. BVCCSC is no longer responsible for maintaining the Starr Creek cabin. Recreation Sites and Trails BC says that the future of Starr Creek remains to be worked out with interested parties, but presently remains officially closed to overnight use due to aivalanche risk.
