Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!
What: Saas- Almagell
When: Friday, August 27,[masked]:45 PM
I have noted on the upcoming zermatt activity that there is a high demand for hiking in the weekends. As such I have contacted a number of places which have beds for groups up to 25-30 people and as such I hope to post a number of activities shortly.
I suggest to spend a weekend in Saas-Almagell (close to saas-fee) and do some hiking around there. Since the train ride to Saas takes 3 hours (leaving 6pm arriving 9pm), I would suggest to go friday night by train and go for hiking on saturday and sunday. Obviously for those who would like this, there is also the option to come saturday and stay only for 1 night.
I have taken an option for 30 beds in a 3 star hotel (hotel Alpenhof, 3905 Saas- Almagell, situated at 1672 meters above sea-level) for the weekend (= friday night and saturday night). All other weekends during the summer are already fully booked out.
The price would be 80 swiss francs per night + 2.10 swiss francs kurtax for half-pension. The hotel is situated centrally, has an internet corner and included for free are a fitness-center with sauna/steam bath.
The hotel has 54 beds, i.e.
2 Zimmer mit 1 Bett
22 Zimmer mit 2 Betten
2 Zimmer mit 4 Betten
I have taken an option for 30 beds which expires on April 12 in the evening (5pm). I realize that this is planning months in advance however in Switzerland chalets/mountain huts etc. are booked out well in advance and therefor no short term planning for groups can be done. Could I please ask you to indicate to me whether BEFORE APRIL 12- 5pm whether you are interested in coming along and if so, for 1 or 2 nights. Please only respond with YES and NO; maybe will be interpreted as NO.
Please note that in the case I confirm the option, it means that I will have to make a deposit/downpayment to the owners and therefor any YES from your side means that you are coming and in case of annullation, I will need to recover the costs that the owner of the chalet charged me for cancellation.
Looking forward to great hiking,
