[edit] General information

The Weissmies Hut (German: Weissmieshütten) (2,726 m) is a mountain hut above Saas Grund in the Pennine Alps in the canton of Valais, Switzerland. There are actually two huts, a smallish old one and a reasonably large and modern one, situated 2 km W of the Lagginjoch below the frontal moraines of the glacier forming the flank of the col on this side. The hut warden is Arthur Anthamatten (Tel: 0041 (0)27 957 24 81).

[edit] History

Built in 1924, second hut built in 1960.

[edit] Approach routes

Use the lift to Chrizbode (or walk to here starting from the lift station and passing Trift on the way). From here follow the path WNW to the hut. The last section is quite steep.

Follow the path W and then NE down moraine slopes. At 3,030 m the path turns NW before reaching a roadway. Walk down this a few m then follow a path to the hut.
