Putting up the Timber
Since the creation of the Rossland Range Recretion Site in January, the Friends of the Rossland Range Society has been hard at work replacing some of the old, debilitated huts with sturdy new cabins.
Berry Ridge was one of the huts replaced by a new cabin, located in Lepsoe Basin on the north side of Mount Lepsoe, between the mountain and Highway 3B.
Dave Watson was one of the Friends of the Rossland Range (FORR) members who spear- headed construction on the new cabin.
“We started talking about the project with planning meetings the end of January, and we evolved from that through design and fundraising well into February, March,” he said. “There was a major fundraising move in May where the Kootenay Mountaineering Club agreed to sponsor the entire project.”
