      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

A hike in Switzerland

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I went for a hike from Zermatt to Chamonix in August/September. It was really fun, despite some unsettled snowy weather on the first part of the trip.


I made a Picasa slideshow here:



Upside - hardly had to carry anything to go from hut to hut.

Downside - gets pretty expensive!!

Expensive, how so?

$40-$60 a day for a mattress and food adds up.


That is correct. I spent over $100 at one hut because I also had lunch and 2 beers there. I was tempted to bring a bivy sack and sleeping bag instead, but with the grim weather and snow I chickened out.


It was much less crowded than I thought it would be. You won't get Cascades-style solitude, but you can go for several hours without seeing anyone.
