"The green metal structures are equipped with bunk beds and sleeping bags for five to eight people, depending on the hut. In the summer, if you have a small group, you may share a hut with another party. During the winter when you reserve a hut it is yours for the night. For summer visitors, a rudimentary kitchen is stocked with supplies including food, water and a propane stove."
