As many of you know the snowshoe hut up on the Twisted Klister System was not up to supporting the three and a half feet of wet snow that started the 2015-2016 ski and snowshoe season. It’s failure deprived trail users last year of a warming hut on that part of the Fourth of July System. The hut has been replaced with a new design constructed around one and a half inch steel pipe (see pictures). It was a design initially suggested by the late Dennis Eular and resembles very much a sheepherders wagon minus the wheels. As you can see it features a door, and is more roomy than it predecessor with headroom up its very sides.. We tested the stove after setting it up and it heats the hut quickly. From Geoff Harvey
