The 15-day Swiss Saver Pass for the adults plus a Swiss Youth Pass would normally be the best option indeed. Please select your preferences (pass type, etc.) at this page
to see purchase options. You'll see that you can buy them locally (e.g. at the rail station of Zurich Airport), but buying online is slightly cheaper as you get a discount with raileurope-world.com
if you purchase before September 5.
However, there's a 2-for-1 promotion
on 4-day Swiss Saver Passes
and Swiss Saver Flexi Passes
which is the cheaper option for you. I think it would be possible for you to purchase two 4-day Swiss Saver Flexi Passes (each for 2 adults). That will save you over $200 and I think it will work out just as well as a 15-day pass in your case. Be sure to look into that! Again, I think raileurope-world.com
would be the best place to buy as you can take advantage of these promo codes
Mountain huts can be pretty popular in September. I wouldn't risk to hike all the way over there to find them fully occupied. There's usually no alternative around in these remote places. I would at least give them a call in the morning. Take a look at the Schweizer Alpen-Club website
for details on the huts.
I hope this helps you out!
