Kees and Claire Hut Grand Opening Celebration + Fundraiser


“The Kees and Claire Hut will open to the public and we want to invite all our generous volunteers, donors, community members and the public to help us celebrate this huge accomplishment.
We are also actively fundraising for the water system and solar panels, so help us spread the word and bring out a crowd to this event.

We are hosting two separate events on September 21st:
1: Official Ribbon Cutting – up at the hut during the day
2: Celebration Event – back down in Whistler Village that evening

Please join us for either or both. Here are the details…”


Come join us! Unlike the ceremony up at the hut, this celebration is easy access with capacity for everyone. We’d love to see the whole Sea to Sky backcountry community come out to celebrate.
