Albina Hut was built in 1951, and removed due to environmental concerns in 1983. After the destruction of the original building, a survival hut was erected.

Paul Shea was on a ski trip led by Leon Smith when the above phot was taken.

"Due to a white out southerly blizzard we got stuck out there past the weekend and returned to much ribbing of the "Oh? Yeah?.....snowed in?" variety. We spent the enforced stay re-puttying the windows."

John Anderson recalls the value of this second shelter here.


KHA Reference number is 2411.
