These Cabins are managed and maintained by the Ripple Ridge Recreation Association from Creston, BC under an agreement with Recreation Sites and Trails of BC.

All of the maintenance and replenishing of firewood is done by volunteers.

The Ripple Ridge and Lightning Strike Cabins are one of the Kootenay's best kept secrets. This is one of only a few places where all season access is so convenient. From the Kootenay Pass parking lot, it only takes about an hour (depending on ability)
to reach the Cabins.

Available year-round, our Cabins make a great base for your next off the grid adventure. In winter the area is non-motorized, but in the summer months it is possible to drive right to the Rec Site. Please note that vehicle access is via the Maryland/Monk Creek FSR's and could be affected by snow accumulation. Road is usually clear by first week of July  but NOT maintained.
