Chamonna Tuoi im Winter

The Chamonna Tuoi of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) will remain closed in the upcoming winter for safety reasons. Major rock movements on the Piz Buin Pitschen, combined with the snow, pose a significant potential danger to the SAC hut in Val Tuoi. For safety reasons, the municipality of Scuol has to close the hut for the winter. Those responsible will decide on summer operation in April 2023, as the different danger situation for the summer will be assessed with further investigations.
