I live in Zurich, and I am looking for pointers on some easily accessible high altitude huts for the purpose of acclimatization. Since I will mostly be going alone, it needs to be T4 or below, and preferably with good connections and easy navigation.
The Klein Matterhon dormitory meets my requirements nicely: I can hike up to Trockenersteig and ride the cable car to the top. The only issue is Zermatt is too far from Zurich. The Monch hut is OK, but too expensive to go regularly due to the Jungfrau train.
Can you suggest something similar, higher than 3000m, that is within 2-3 hours from Zurich? I have seen the SAC site, however any personal recommendations would be gratefully received.
