The Santnerpass hut is located at the Santnerpass, at the west side of the Rosengartenspitze in the Catinnacio area.
It is a privat hut built of wood in 1965.
It is located at a beautiful place with a great view to Latemar, Ortler Alps, Schlern and Brenta. It is a great place for a sunset!
Open: at summer
The hut was closed at the end of the summer 2005 and a new hut was reconstructed. There is no accomodation at the moment. The outside parts of the hut has been completed. The inside rooms weren´t finished yet (February 2007). So at the moment it is not known if the hut will be re-opened in in early summer 2007.
