Directions

The SAC hut in Valais is located at 2'726 metres altitude and looks out across the highest four-thousand-metre peaks in Switzerland. Starting from Saas-Grund, hikers take the gondola lift up the mountain. If you get off at the Kreuzboden middle station, the walk up to the Weissmies hut takes about an hour. Alternatively, you can take the cable car up to the Hochsaas station at 3'000 metres and from there it's a short walk downhill to the hut.

Book early

In the high season there's a lot going on at the hut during the day, but those who stay overnight will be able to enjoy the morning and evening peace. It is advisable to book early or come on weekdays if you want to get one of the family rooms.
