Harvey Pass has been a winter recreation area for many years. The pass site above 6000 feet offers abundant snow earlier and is very accessible.
Over the years several cabins have been built without permit and have been burnt to the ground, the last cabin in the spring of 2016.
The Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club worked to secure official BC government recreation site status and approval to build the Harvey Pass Warming Hut. Everything is in place and has moved forward with immediate construction of the Harvey Pass Warming Hut.
Hut is NOT yet open to the public. Still very much a construction site! The fireplace is not fully installed and there is no door.

The Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club is raising funds to pay for building materials for the construction of the Harvey Pass Warming Hut. This authorized BC Recreation Site will be open to all users. All funds will be used to pay for construction and outfitting materials, labour and management has been 100% volunteer.
The project got this far with generous donations from Fernie businesses, and as much donated and discounted material as possible. But it’s not done yet! There is all the finishing touches needed to complete the build. See the Supporters page for details.
