McMurdo Hut is actually maintained by the Columbia Valley Hut Society and can be booked for stays in summer and winter. There is heavy snowmobile traffic in the winter but there are areas designated for skiing only. When I was last up there I was able to cross that creek above the cabin and make my way up to the old mine itself. I would like to go back and do the traverse to Silent Lake to make it into a loop as well as check out International Basin.
