Moose Creek Warming Hut
north of Sandpoint, Idaho
Just outside Sandpoint, on the Lightning Creek drainage off Moose Creek Road, students built a warming hut that features a wood-burning stove and covered area to park snowmobiles. The hut provides a gathering place for nature lovers, a safe haven during snowstorms and a base camp for search and rescue parties entering the remote North Idaho wilderness. The project was a collaboration with the Sandpoint Ranger District, the National Forest Foundation, Idaho Forest Group, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Winter Riders Snowmobile Club.
