Are you passionate about the outdoors, backcountry huts, and Alaska’s amazing public lands? Do you have an ability to engage and energize staff, volunteers, board members, partnering organizations, and donors? The Alaska Huts Association is looking for a new Executive Director to oversee the organization.

Alaska Huts’ mission is to include Alaska’s backcountry in a worldwide tradition of places in which hikers and skiers can travel hut to hut and provide warm comfortable huts in inspiring settings to foster camaraderie and promote wilderness education and stewardship.

We have been operating Manitoba Cabin on the Kenai Peninsula since 2012, providing backcountry accommodations for hikers and skiers, and a venue for our educational programming. Partnerships with local nonprofits and school groups allow us to provide introductory backcountry experiences to users that wouldn’t otherwise be able to get outside. The new Executive Director will also be taking the lead on planning, permitting and fundraising for the new Glacier Discovery Hut System.

We are a small and vibrant organization, dedicated to providing sustainable and appropriate facilities to access the great outdoors of Alaska for users of all ages, outdoor skills, and economic status.  Alaska Huts wants your leadership and communication abilities for our exciting mission to create a world-class hut-to-hut system in the Kenai Mountains.
