Under a cool blue sky, the Kitimat Snowmobile and Hikers Club officially opened a new cabin on Clague Mountain.

Under a cool blue sky, the Kitimat Snowmobile and Hikers Club officially opened a new cabin on Clague Mountain.

The new structure is the result of countless hours of effort by members of the club, and the local community.

Chad Fournier, the club’s president, said the shell of the cabin was finished in the fall and members have slowly been working away to make it ready for its grand opening, which was on Mar. 31.

This new cabin will replace an older one already on Clague, and joins the club’s cabin family — they have another one on Robinson Ridge, accessed from Forest Avenue.

“That’s an old cabin too,” he said. “Our hope with the success of this project is to keep the momentum and motivation going…and perhaps replacing that cabin as well.”

Their new cabin on Clague is primarily a day-use one but the club welcomes people to use it for overnight stays if they need as well. There is a loft area that will fit several people, and there’s a wood stove for heat and a propane cook-top.

The club is currently enjoying approximately 70 members, the highest it’s ever been.

“I do know this year we have the highest membership total ever, so things are moving in the right direction for the club,” said Fournier.

The club is thankful for the sponsorships from local businesses as well as the joint effort from the Haisla, the Ministry of Forests and Range and the District of Kitimat.
