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 was last night. The Swiss huts are running at a reduced capacity, but it's more than 50% and doesn't feel covid secure at all.

So are you wearing some sort of cowl at night, with a filter on it? 

Or just not breathing?   :-}

June last year I was in Germany in the Wetterstein massif and the huts were pretty empty. Had a six person room for the two of us. Weather was pretty terrible though...

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.

I'm not sure of the current state of epidemiology of Covid-19 in Switzerland, nor of how their vaccination status is improving, but that's a consideration before going there (again).

The Swissinfo.ch has regular updates if you’re interested. The situation seems to be getting worse and around 16% of the population have had one dose.

Watching it closely for a planned trip to Zermatt in September which was rolled from last year.
