Guide Ayas Hut

In the mid-eighties, thanks to the help of the Valle d’Aosta region and the free grant of the land by the Municipality of Ayas, the Ayas Mountain Guide starts a new project; the building of an alpine hut in Val d’Ayas.

The Guide Ayas Hut, inaugurated in September 1991, is located to 3400m above the rocky area called Lambronecca. It is about an hour from Rifugio Mezzalama and is a modern and functional hut with 80 beds. Improves the area also for foreign climbers, often with alpine guides, coming from Zermatt or Breuil-Cervinia to climb the peaks of Monte Rosa.
