Alpine Initiatives Provides Inspiration And Funding For The Betterment Of Mountain Communities!
We have a mountain experience in mind that when completed will impact more than we can imagine. We want to build a JP Auclair Memorial Hut as one of three backcountry huts planned for the new Spearhead Traverse hut system just outside of Whistler / Blackcomb.
The backcountry hut celebrates the journey to remote places by offering refuge from the elements. It is a place for the soul to truly rest while embarking on the greatest of adventures.
The hut has an increasingly important role in concentrating human impact in order to reduce environmental harm so that our wild places remain just that for those who travel among them.
The huts are designed and programmed for use year round for hikers, skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers and mountaineers, the experienced and less experienced, young and old, individuals and groups. Huts create work for guides, on-site custodians and maintenance workers, all the while providing a place for instructional and educational courses
In honor of JP Auclair, this is how we want to do more. How we want to be more creative in our inspirational and environmental impact for the better. Help us make building this hut a reality!
