For the huts use the Swiss Alpine Club's hut finder. For hotels the Valais Hotel Association has both a list (many, many pages!) and a much more convenient search page. You can either order or download the hotels list from the Valais Tourist Office's brochures page. In addition I give links to tourism office web sites, they cover a variety of types of accommodation. Neither source is exhaustive, and you may well wish to consult the all-knowing Google!
- The Local Committee
of Mountain Hiking in the Haute-Savoie has a few general pages in
English,and an excellent page (in French only) on the Gîtes et Refuges Sur le

the Hôtel de Mauvoisin
at the bottom of the Mauvoisin dam.

Region site has information on Arolla, Les Haudères, Evolène
itself and La Sage.

Anniviers gateway or go directly to the sites of the major
