Alaska Huts Association

Alaska Huts Association is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization promoting the inclusion of Alaska's backcountry in a worldwide tradition of places in which hikers and skiers can travel hut-to-hut while providing warm comfortable huts in inspiring settings that foster camaraderie and promote wilderness education and stewardship. Alaska Huts is currently running Manitoba Cabin and Yurts, while fundraising to build more Huts in Southcentral Alaska. Located just 90 minutes south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway, Manitoba Cabin is a hike-in/ski-in cabin accessed via a 3/4-mile trail from the parking area at Milepost 48. Manitoba was originally built in 1936 as a mining cabin, and was renovated by the Alaska Huts Association in 2012. This one-story building has a wood stove for heat, a standard four-burner stove for cooking, solar-powered lights, all kitchenware, as well as books and games. There are two 16-foot yurts for sleeping, each with four single bunks and two double bunks. Toba's Yurt has a wood stove for heat and allows dogs, while the Spirit Walker Yurt has a propane heater and is a pet-free zone. Inside Manitoba cabin, the Hut Keeper's Quarters are also available for rental. A private room with a double bed, it provides a sleeping option within the main cabin, but is set apart by a breezeway/storage area. The Manitoba property also provides guests with access to a cozy wood-fired Finnish sauna for relaxing after a busy day in the outdoors. There is a two-room outhouse located within easy access of both the cabin and yurts. A stocked woodpile, with tools, is located near the yurts and the cabin.
