The weather

Winter: Cold with often loads of snow, with northern wind (tramontana) the weather can be Siberian like. Nevertheless it’s not unusual to sunbathe in January when the air is quiet.

Spring: Mostly sunny and warm during the day and cool at night, with 5 to 10 day long cold and rainy weather episodes. Above 1500m a 2 to 3 day lasting snowfall is unusual but possible. The closer to midsummer, the hotter and drier.

Summer: Hot and dry till half August with exceptional and short thunderstorm periods. The second half of August, it refreshes rapidly because of the afternoon violent thunderstorms, often with hail and even snow. Very pleasant morning temperature in the sun.

& Fall: Rainy at times, you rarely will see lasting grey weather. The sun comes out often and the nights cool off according to the snowfall in the high mountain. In November snow is probable and sometimes lasts all winter (like 2008/2009).

Weather Forecast: Before travelling consult your preferred meteorological service.

What is a Mountain Hut?

Mountain huts are a very specific type of lodging because of their situation and difficulty of access.
- The mountain huts are conceived as a sportive installation: respect the quiet hours for who wants to get up early.
- You are expected to arrive before dark or in summer before 19h00. Dinner is usually served around 20h00 and you should warn if you can’t arrive on time, if not emergency services might be alerted.
- The menu is standard: everybody eats the same. If you have nutritional problems (celiacs, diabetics, vegetarians …), please let it know long before arriving.
- You should carry a pair of comfortable shoes or slippers and leave your trekkers when arriving at the mountain hut.
- The bedrooms do not open till dinner time.
- Electricity and water are often difficult to obtain: respect the indications of the guard. It’s your own responsibility to drink water of the fountains and taps, potability is probable but not assured.
- Carry a battery light for nightly moves.
- Coming from the “civilisation”, you probably have more information about the weather then the guards do, but you can prefer to trust their sixth sense.
- As there is no litter recollection, as a general rule you have to carry yours back to the village.
