About this title

Synopsis:

The history of the Swiss Alpine Club and the alpinists first mountain huts go hand in hand - both first appearing in 1863. In 2013, 150 years later The Huts of the Swiss Alpine Club has been published as a celebration of these icons of the Swiss mountain landscape. The huts now belong to the cultural heritage of the Swiss Alps and the mountains would seem incomplete without them. Today there are 152 SAC huts and they can be found high up on the Matterhorn or above the Glacier d Otemma while others are lower down the mountains in green, grassy areas - each one has its own history. Nowadays they are used by alpinists, mountaineers, skiers and families. The Huts of the Swiss Alpine Club celebrates the huts diverse architecture and jaw dropping locations. This lavish book is a glossy, photographic record of these buildings. Background information is given for each and is accompanied by inspiring mountain photography. In addition the authors have provided an overview map, a short history, and appendices giving operational details of each hut and statistics and graphs. Text is in English, German, french and Italian languages.
