Description Easily the most visited hut in the Tararuas and with good reason. Awesome is the only way to describe a night on the mountain although expect
it to be cold and crowded no matter what time of year. I've spent many a comfortable night out on the balcony while everyone inside puts up
with the cold, snoring and people moving around at all hours. In winter a popular activity is to wait till first thing in the morning and watch
the accidental ice skating as the water on the floor freezes overnight.
Getting There Powell Hut can be accessed from Holdsworth roadend via Gentle Annie or Jumbo. For the more adventurous you can reach Powell from Mid Waiohine, Totara Flats and Atiwhakatu hut.
