/ Winter room advice
I am staying in a winter room with a group on a ski touring trip at the beginning of Feb.
I have only dossed in one for a night huddled in a sleeping bag but this time we will be in the same one for about 5 days.
Based on limited info from t'internet the hut looks pretty well stocked, blankets, wood, decent sitting and sleeping area. It's also relatively easy to get to from a lift area so we can carry lots in.
Looking forward to it, but any top tips on what to take to turn this into a luxurious experience!?
Begining of March not Feb!!
Winter room is in Austrian alps
I'm the kind who can over plan, but I'd take a warm sleeping bag anyway.
Shouldn't you be hibernating?

Heated loo seat?
With the exception of Timmd, really useful advice guys! Thank god I have the hive mind of UKC to rely on for this!
Don’t forget the whiskey
Slippers, warm feckers n'all
Bog roll - personal stash
stock cubes - pimp up the standard hut dinners
a good game..... guess who is a personal fave
A handful of candles.
A pack of playing cards.
A bottle of malt whisky.
A good size lump of comte or some other mountain cheese and plain crackers.
If there's any doubt on the blankets being there, take a basic sleeping mat as those hut mattresses are worthy heat sinks during winter.
Thanks all. I have these on the list
