HMC Cabin Caretaker Stipend

Most years, between December 1 and March 31, the Harvard Mountaineering Club operates a cabin in Huntington Ravine, a popular destination for backcountry skiers, ice climbers, and other recreationists.  The Cabin caretaker provides critical support to the Forest Service through snowpack and condition analysis, as well as supporting search and rescue efforts.

Revenue from people staying at the cabin is typically just enough to cover the cost of a caretaker. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to open the cabin and fund the caretaker position. The New Hampshire Outdoors Council has already provided a grant for $3000, and this fundraiser will be used to cover the remainder of the caretaker's winter stipend, with any excess funds going toward cabin maintenance (especially the privy!).

Please feel free to share your e-mail at if you'd like to keep abreast of the Harvard Cabin and future developments!
