a winter area is on routistic used mountain huts, which are not managed in the winter. The winter area is mostly not contrary to the remaining hut easily accessible and locked or with the alpine association key accessible.
In a winter area one can stay overnight as self-supports also in the winter. A furnace and a wood mostly are to the Einschüren, often also a table and a sleep possibility.
As overnight accomodation fee one donates something into the hut cash of the winter area.
