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, in combination 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.

 

The SAC hut is located at 2250 m a.s.l. in the Tuoital, at the foot of the Piz Buin (3312 m). You can reach the hut in 2.5 hours on a good trail. In summer, the hut is an ideal starting point for climbing the Piz Buin and other easy high-altitude tours. Mountain hikers will also find wonderful paths and destinations. The surroundings of the Chamonna Tuoi are also suitable for children to play.

 

In 1914, the Chamonna Tuoi CAS/SAC was built just above the Val Tuoi, which is still used for grazing livestock. From the hut you have a fantastic view of the mountain world around the Piz Buin, the third highest mountain in the Silvretta. You can also see the Piz Fliana and the Piz Cotschen, as well as the neighbouring Val Tasna and the Futschöl Pass.
