nuit au refuge des près et ski de randonnée

Ski touring and nights at Les Près hut with an instructor/guide

Les Près refuge it is the comfort of an inn and the atmosphere of a mountain refuge. A former alpine chalet renovated between 2020 and 2021, the refuge now welcomes hikers and ski tourers within the Contamines Montjoie nature reserve on the slopes of Mont-Blanc. We invite you to practice ski touring against this alpine backdrop, to enjoy the comfort of this brand new building for an evening, and to spend the night in one of the 7 dormitories of 4 places in the refuge des Close. A first ski lift will allow you to gain altitude and you will then discover the wild Haut Val Montjoie with your instructor/guide.
