Cope Hut - A ski refuge on the high plains

Bushwalkers and cross-country skiers enjoy visiting this place, and others like it across the Victorian Alps. It is great to rest near a hut and enjoy the tranquility of the Alps.Brian and Erin Peacock and Elder Nielsen check out the inside of the hut. It would be welcome shelter in the cold winter. With evidence of possoms and other critters, it could be an exciting place to stay.

The Cope Hut was built in 1929, was the first purpose-built tourist structure on the high plains. It was a new kind of hut for the Victorian Alps, with hot and cold water as well as two bunk rooms designed to sleep eight.
