The huts were put there to save lives, a place to shelter from the crazy storms that pop up from time to time. They serve a humanitarian purpose. The hotels were placed to serve toursists and they are all gone. There are more and more tourists in the whites, but they no longer have much of an interest to stay overnight when their own bed is a couple hours drive away. There will be even less incentive to stay at the cog hotel since its a quick train ride back down the mountain to their car.
