We (me and 3 friends) spended 3 days in Rifugio Torino waiting for conditions to climb on the Dent du Geant. After snowing one day and one night there was to much soft snow to climb the access-slope. So we came back. But the most "beautifull" memories are left on the "cheap" rifugio. The small bottle of water costed 2 Euros ! The overnight include breakfast costed 52 Euros...!!! And the hostes (an italian pair) were very unpolite. Even a couple of hikers that came at 02.00 o clock in the morning in the refuge and sleeped on the floor had to pay a full overnight price...!!!
