Mountain huts and refuges
OPENING ON JUNE 21
In 1924, at the instigation of an American mountaineer living in Paris, Stuart Jenkins, a hut was built underneath the present hut which bore his name. It provided shelter for 10 people. After the construction of the new hut in 1946, it was used as a bonfire. For the anecdote, let's mention that Jenkins' guide was none other than Jean-Michel Bournissen !!! Several renovations allowed the guards to welcome nearly 120 visitors.
In 2008, the cabin was completely renovated and extended. The sanitary facilities were integrated into the hut and the janitor now has adequate rooms.
Since nature only acts according to its own laws, it is imperative, if you do not have the necessary skills, to call upon the services of a mountain professional before embarking on such an experience.
Let yourself be taken by the magic of the mountain in the company of a professional.
