Cabane de Moiry - 027 475 45 34

The previous time we had been to the Cabane, my wife and I promised ourselves we'd never go back there. Next year we plan to go back - why this change of heart? It's very simple. I re-visited the hut as part of the Haute Route hike with some friends in September. What we found was a spanking brand new extension to the Cabane (officially inaugurated in early July). It had 8 well-thought out 4 bunk-bedded rooms, good hot showers (though on the expensive side - CHF5 for 3 minutes), clean toilets and wash facilities and the piece de resistance a dinning room with panoramic views of the Moiry Icefall. What a great reward for the 1.5 hour uphill slog from Glacier du Parking.

This cabane has definitely upped the game for mountain huts/cabanes in the Swiss Alps. Highly, highly recommended - at the height of the summer season you will need to book well ahead.
