Wood Stock 2016


Alaska Huts invites you to join us for Wood Stock where Huts enthusiasts and civic minded outdoors-people come together to prep Manitoba Cabin for the winter season. And—if being a good steward of resources isn't enough to light your fire—we'll share meals, drinks and live music from Alaska's own, High Lonesome Sound

Bring friends and family to Manitoba Cabin to share the workload and excitement for Alaska Huts! We'll see you there!

Head to Eventbrite to RSVP and e-mail  if you plan on staying the night!

Can I stay the night at Manitoba Cabin after Wood Stock?

- Yes! If you plan to stay the night at Wood Stock you may either pitch your own tent or reserve a bunk. If you intend to stay the whole night please e-mail Sarah Zerkel at Let us know if you would like a bunk or will be providing your own sleeping arrangment. Bunks are limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. If you don't plan to stay the night, just an RSVP is enough. 

How much are bunks?

- During Wood Stock bunks are FREE! We do ask that you committ at least 3 hours of volunteer time in exchange. 

Can I bring my dog? 

- No. While your furry friends are normally welcome at Manitoba, we ask that they hang at home during Wood Stock. 

What tools should I bring? 

- Keep it simple and dress for working outside. We've got most big items covered, but we're always grateful for wheelbarrows and dollys.

What's for dinner? 

- We'll be having a community meal. Huts staff will provide chili and limited sides. We ask that you also bring a side dish or dessert to contribute.

Where should I park? 

- Park at Mile 48 of the Seward Highway and follow the path to Manitoba. 

To RSVP to Wood Stock, please visit our Event on Eventbrite, and don't forget to e-mail Sarah Zerkel at if you intend to stay overnight.
