Du Vent Hut
Whether the winds blow from east to west or from north to south, they glide right by this wind shelter because of its original construction: it is hexagonal. As with other cabins and huts, it took many weeks of work to bring the logs to the site. It was quite a challenge! The location of this shelter is purely magical and offers a bird’s-eye view of peaceful Lake Windigo.
This day shelter can accommodate 7 people with its 7 single mattresses on the mezzanine. In the morning, checkout time is 10 a.m.
Reservation required. Please go to the Village des Bâtisseurs (P2) to get the key that will give you access to the beds.

Rules and regulations
The cabins are inspected on regular basis. Any damage or deterioration inflicted to the cabins will be brought to the attention of the guest who will ultimately assume the repair cost. All trash generated by a guests’ stay should be taken off the mountain to respect our “leave no trace” policy. It’s also important to separate your recyclables from your trash.
The Regional Park Montagne du Diable will not, in any case, be held responsible for possible thefts in the cabins (it is therefore recommended to always lock the cabin before leaving).The Regional Park Montagne du Diable will not be responsible for the guests’ cabin keys. In the event that a guest forgets to return the keys, it is his or her responsibility to cover the cost of returning the keys or pay the appropriate fine. The same policy applies to lost keys as well.
If a guest accepts to transfer their photos to our image bank (photo gallery) at the end of their visit, he or she is accepting that the Regional Park Montagne du Diable can use the photos for commercial purposes without compensation on the part of the Park Regional Montagne du Diable.
It is prohibited to make a fire or to smoke in the forest as well as outside the cabins except for the predetermined places to this effect.
