Hidden hut in Tararuas

Wondering how many hidden huts there are in Tarries. Found one and looking for others. Would be nice to know how many I have to go.

Browsing the latest rendition of topo50 in the Tararua I see it's showing an unlabelled building roughly in the vicinity of Snowy, although I don't have my notes to hand to confirm if it's exactly where Snowy Hut should be. Is that new? I don't recall the building being there before and I think there could be a few concerned people if they realised LINZ is advertising where it is.
I havent checked prior Tararua maps - but yes, you are correct Izogi - that is the actual location of snowy. Waitohu is similarly marked on the maps, although that latter one is a lot easier to get to.
Yes that's snowy
There are currently 12 unofficial huts in the Tararua FP that I have been to (3 DOC bio huts & 9 pvte) . If you include Putaputa stream hut in the GWRC Kaitoke catchment that would make 13 unofficial huts currently in existence in the Tararuas bagged by me. From the comments above it would seem that people are not aware of the pvte huts on the western side. Keep exploring.
