Hooker Valley, Aoraki Mount Cook
Hooker hut, like those who stay in her, is a danger seeker. Built high above Hooker Glacier in 1910 it has been moved 5 times, hit by an avalanche, taken apart and stored before being moved to its current safer site.
This design was a Mini Hut request and we were drawn in by it’s bold colour scheme. The centenarian hut stubbornly refused to be tamed after being rebuilt. It wore out the new roof paint job within a year to show its true age and we have sought to emulate that by offering a speckled roof treatment.
Plain orange roof is also available.
