Refuge du Gouter climb Mont Blanc

Due to bad weather conditions, the Goûter refuge closed today, the 24th of September 2019, one week in advance.

With many other domains and ski lifts having already been closed, the 2019 summer season in Chamonix is coming to an end.

Located on the main access road to Mont-Blanc, the Goûter refuge will close today, the 24th of September 2019, in the morning.

It was initially planned that the refuge would stay open for one more week. However, the adverse weather forecast caused an early closure.

The decision was taken on Sunday, as Météo France announced snow on Tuesday morning.

All those who booked were contacted by phone or e-mail, but most had already cancelled their visit. "The customers are responsible people", says Antoine Rattin, guardian of the refuge.
