Will we at some point be able to go back to being packed like sardines in an Alpine hut, for a (disturbed) sleep prior to getting up in the early hours, and get on with achieving our mountain dreams and goals? In the next two years?
I'm just hoping that none of the (8 or so?) other people in my room were infectious. Masks are supposed to be worn in the hut but obviously people take them off for dinner and then after that no-one seems bothered about it any more. This was the third SAC hut I've stayed in this season and they're all the same, the only solution I see is to go when it's not busy. Easter weekend with wall-to-wall sunshine was always going to be bad I guess.
