"Wilderness stewardship through personal experience and education."
Our mission is to include Alaska’s back country in a worldwide tradition of places in which hikers and skiers can travel hut to hut, and provide warm comfortable huts in inspiring settings to foster camaraderie and promote wilderness education and stewardship.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Thank you for considering Alaska Huts for your Pick.Click.Give donation. We know you have many worthy nonprofit organizations in Alaska to choose from.
Alaska Huts is a small organization, working to expand backcountry access in Southcentral Alaska. We currently operate one hut, Manitoba Cabin & Yurts, located at Milepost 48 on the Seward Highway. Just a short 3/4 mile walk or ski from the road, Manitoba makes it possible for more people of all ages to experience overnights and adventures in the backcountry year round, encouraging more people to become stewards of our public lands and wild spaces.
Your donation through Pick.Click.Give. will allow us to provide opportunities to people who would not otherwise be able to afford it. Because of your support, we are able to work with area nonprofits and school groups to experience this remote feeling facility and surrounding area at reduced rates. Your generosity creates a positive first outdoor experience for kids growing up in Alaska that may not have opportunities to access the mountains.
Pick.Click.Give. donations are also critical as we work to expand and develop a hut-to-hut system. We are currently partnering with the Forest Service on a proposed three hut-system along the Whistle Stop section of the Alaska Railroad, near Spencer Glacier and Grandview. This would increase the accessibility in an area featuring classic Alaskan wilderness, while also allowing us to continue to expand our educational programming. This project is well into the planning stages. Your support will keep this momentum going, creating a critical source of funding for a world class hut system with superb educational and recreational settings.
