Dan Moller Cabin was originally built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps as part of a combined effort by the Juneau Ski Club and the Forest Service to develop winter recreation on Douglas Island. It was named after a Forest Service employee who was also the founding member of the Juneau Ski Club. The cabin was rebuilt in 2010 and now features a design that withstands heavy snow loads.
The site is open year-round and can be accessed by hiking, snowshoeing or skiing on a 3-mile trail with an 1,800-foot elevation gain. Access by snowmobile is allowed only when snow is at least a foot deep. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety and must bring several of their own amenities.
