She turns, runs back home. "Then I have to sleep alone again," said the host, laughing.

Relaxed, he sits in the hut. The 61 guest are gone, evacuated on Sunday afternoon as it was clear: To come on foot into the valley. Not about the gorge, not even on the Hupfleitenjoch over on the far corner of the net. "You can forget it," says Auer. One of the helpers looked at the path on Sunday morning. Too dangerous.

The locally very limited storm left behind massive tracks. With such an extent none of them had anticipated.
