Jamtalhütte Feb 2016

We spent four days at the Jamtalhütte in Austria from 25 – 28 Feb 2016.

 

Day 1:

The weather wasn’t predicted to be particularly good so on the first day we drove to Galtür in Austria arriving at the alpine start time of erm… well… 12 pm. We skinned up the 15 km or so to the hut rising about 650 vertical metres. We had patches of blue/grey amongst the clouds but the weather forecast was mostly correct… i.e. not particularly good.

The hut is a very popular destination and has 122 beds, 60 spaces in the mattress area and 12 in the winter room. It sits at 2165 m above sea level in the Silvretta Alps and is owned by a section of the German Alpine Club.
