The USFS cabin at Hermit Lake is an old structure in need of regular ongoing maintenance and repair. The Friends of Tuckerman Ravine provided financial assistance to the USFS in order to improve and sustain this cabin location, especially during the brutal winter months when the USFS Snow Ranger team makes it their headquarters during avalanche monitoring activities and winter snow and ice conditions reporting. The cabin also serves as a base for search and rescue activities and related first aid dispatch in Tuckerman and Huntington ravines.
There are a number of important infrastructure projects and initiatives needed to keep the Hermit Lake cabins in good operating condition. A priority for the 2013-14 winter season was the replacement of the worn out and cracked flooring in the cabin.
This project has now been completed thanks to your donations and through the financial support of Friends of Tuckerman Ravine!
Please keep up the good work and show your appreciation for the important work that the Snow Ranger team performs by making a thoughtful contribution to our Hermit Lake Infrastructure Fund. We have more projects coming up that need your support!
