Opening of Ueschinen Hut01.06.2015
The first challenge for the day was to transport everything we needed up to the hut. The last bit of the road was blocked off by an avalanche, so everyone got some healthy morning exercise!
We spent the day installing the water and electricity - together with all the cleaning needed to make the hut look nice. Did you know that all electricity comes from the hut´s very own solar panel? And that the water is taken directly from a small river running down the mountains?
After a busy day of cleaning and fixing, the hut was ready. Most of the pinkies working at KISC came up for dinner, and we had a very nice barbecue which marked the opening of Ueschinen Hut.
Most pinkies stayed at the hut during the night and participated in climbing activities the following day. After a few hours of climbing in perfect spring weather, we hiked down towards the centre.
I had a really good time cleaning the hut and making everything ready for summer. I also enjoyed the evening and the climbing the next day. I hope that every scout visiting the hut this summer will have a similarly amazing experience.
