My boyfriend and I will be hiking the hiker's Haute Route right at the end of the mountain hut season (September 20-30). Some of the huts will be closed at this time, but I have read that they keep a "winter room" open.
I haven't been able to find more detailed information on the winter rooms, however. If anyone knows what this means, it would be great to have a little more information. For example, does this mean the hut is open even though there is no one there, so we can go inside and get warm and dry and sleep inside? We will have camping stove and can cook our own food, but I want to make sure we will have a place to go inside and sleep in these huts, as they are the only shelter along the route in some sections. If we won't be able to get inside, we will bring our tent and all of our camping things.
Thank you for you assistance!
