- Tents essential for Fit party, recommended for Easy & Medium parties given the long weekend and the area’s popularity
- Huts are serviced so a $25 green hut ticket to stay in them, a $10 blue hut ticket to camp at them. Probably easier just to have a valid Backcountry Hut Pass which covers both eventualities.
