Imagine yourself on one of the access routes to Mont Blanc, highly popular among skiers, in a high mountain glacial environment. You’re at the Grands Mulets refuge, a steel ship stranded on its rock. Skiers and mountaineers stop there for a night of rest. But the Grands Mulets refuge is also a place of encounters, moments of indulgence, and a well-stocked library for a moment of tranquility.
The Grands Mulets refuge is located on the historic route of Mont Blanc, on a rocky islet at an altitude of 3051m, surrounded by ice in the midst of a high mountain atmosphere. It’s an unusual and exceptional place. The site is heavily frequented in spring for skiing Mont Blanc, as it’s the direct route beneath the north face of Mont Blanc.
Once the skiing season is over, it becomes an ascent route for Mont Blanc through exceptional mountaineering, far from the crowds and following the tracks of Balmat and Paccard in 1786, the first climbers. The refuge itself is already a goal, and surrounding yourself with a guide for a first experience is essential.
THE REFUGE IS OPEN FROM LATE MARCH TO LATE JULY. THE REFUGE TEAM WILL ALWAYS TAKE THE TIME TO INFORM YOU ABOUT THE CURRENT ROUTE AND ACCESS CONDITIONS.
