Chain of Mont Blanc

Chain of Mont Blanc. A new hut with capacity of 100-150, for summer climbing and spring skiing, is to be built near the site of the present Grands Mulets, and a similar structure will also be placed at 2600 m. on the Trélatête Glacier. On August 15th, 1942, the Refuge Alphonse Simond (3650 m.), on the Aig. du Midi, was opened in anticipation of the completion of the téléférique.
