Mt Murray Work Party
October 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This is the last one of the season and it is the most important backcountry work party of the year.
Meet at 8:00am at the weigh scales parking lot (before the gold pan, after A&W), Sunday October 21st for carpooling.
Call or email me, Taylor if you have any questions. Please contact if you plan to attend so I know how many people to expect in the morning.

The wooden foundation and deck needs replacement at the Mt Murray cabin. The original foundation is made partially with cut timbers that are beginning to show rot. These need replacement. The club has purchased new timbers that are being flown up to the cabin at the earliest convenience; however, there is no way to guarantee that the lumber will arrive in time for the work party. We are keeping our fingers crossed but this leaves us with two scenarios.
1) the timber arrives in time and we replace the foundation and deck this year.
2) the timber does not arrive, but we still need a lot of people to refill the firewood storage, which is absolutely empty after a great ski season last year.
The Mt Murray cabin sees constant use throughout the year. The cabin is accessible in every season, which makes it uniquely special but it also means it needs the most care.
Thank you everyone!
