First thing that might discourage some people is, there are no restrooms or outhouses. In order to keep the area as pristine as possible guests will be using Clean Mountain Cans. Clean Mountain Cans are standard in places like Denali and Everest. You will be issued a Clean Mountain Can and RESTOP2 waste bag. On your departure your Clean Mountain Can and contents will be brought out with you.
Flights are dependent on VFR (Visual Flight Rules). If the pilot can't see it, they can't fly to it. If the day of your arrival/departure the lookout is covered in clouds we may need to hike to/from a different landing zone. It's recommended you pack what you can hike up to a couple miles in if necessary.
Glacier Lookout sits at 3,640ft in a coastal mountain range. There maybe days where the lookout is completely encompassed by clouds. We certainly hope you're able to fully enjoy the views, however there's little we can do to guarantee this. If you are planning on flying out, and the helicopter is unable to retrieve you on your exit day, if the following group is hiking in you will need to either hike out, or stay in the guide cabin down the mountain when the next group arrives.
Glacier Lookout has no power and cell signal is spotty inside the lookout. Good cellular signal is just a few hundred feet away.
